Listed shipping shares have, like other sectors, experienced a tough start to the new year with shares sliding an average 19 percent across the board. Most notable is the dramatic decline noted among tanker carriers, of 23 percent and 27 percent for crude oil and product tankers, respectively, according to a review of share prices and rates performed by Clarksons Platou.
