Value Investor's Edge Live #43: Flex LNG: Surging Cash Flows And Dividends

Oeystein Kalleklev, CEO of Flex LNG (FLNG), a leading ultramodern LNG shipping company, joined J Mintzmyer's Value Investor's Edge Live on June 10, 2021, to discuss the LNG shipping markets and capital allocation priorities for Flex LNG. Flex has set an upsized dividend level of $0.40/qtr and appears set to support this payout, and potentially even higher payouts, due to excellent time charter fixtures. Despite this progress, FLNG still trades at a significant discount to NAV if we utilize newbuild asset parity, which I estimate at nearly $20/sh. This implies over 45% of equity upside in addition to a nearly 12% income yield. FLNG is likely to raise the dividend even further by late 2021!
