First annual report from stock-listed OW Bunker, new USTC strategy makes Torben Østergaard-Nielsen bring fresh faces onto the group's Board of Directors, and how strong would a potential bulk rebound be? And the Trident Alliance is underway. Here are this week's top picks.

The world's two largest bunker companies, OW Bunker and Dan-Bunkering, made headlines this past week. Ow Bunker published its first annual report after completing an IPO, and Torben Østergaard-Nielsen's USTC performed a Board of Directors reshuffle, bringing in two fresh faces.
A disappointing annual report from Blue Water Shipping also made headlines, along with the question of when the expected dry bulk rebound will appear, and - in particular - how long it will last, seeing as China's economy is developing in a less shipping-intensive direction than in the past.
