Company Description

Why We Like It:
The fact that shipping rates have been on the rebound in the last four weeks has had little affect on shares of OSG. The stock failed at its 200-dma in late February. The oversold bounce just failed a couple of days ago under $34.00. Now OSG is on the verge of a serious breakdown.

I am suggesting small bearish positions now at current levels with a stop loss at $34.25. The 50-dma is at $34.12. We can add to positions once we see OSG close under the August 2010 lows near $31.40. The P&F chart is forecasting a $25 target. I am suggesting we set our exit targets at $27.75 and $25.25.

Remember, small positions at first and then add to positions as the play progresses.
