I post this to stress the fact that MISC missed the biggest bull run of container and freight shipping of the century because of the decision to dispose their shipping lines. This news is relevant to explain why MISC:MK never experienced the growth or SP appreciation. Many shareholders were disappointed.
Even NOL could not survive its container shipping, wht makes u think MISC can? MISC sold container shipping business more than 10 years already, another one or two years, its few chemical tankers also will be sold.
A supply chain crunch that was meant to be temporary now looks like it will last well into next year as the surging delta variant upends factory production in Asia and disrupts shipping, posing more shocks to the world economy.
Manufacturers reeling from shortages of key components and higher raw material and energy costs are being forced into bidding wars to get space on vessels, pushing freight rates to records and prompting some exporters to raise prices or simply cancel shipments altogether.
“We can’t get enough components, we can’t get containers, costs have been driven up tremendously,” said Christopher Tse, chief executive officer of Hong Kong-based Musical Electronics Ltd., which makes consumer products from Bluetooth speakers to Rubik’s Cubes.
Tse said the cost of magnets used in the puzzle toy have risen by about 50% since March, increasing the production cost by about 7%. “I don’t know if we can make money from Rubik’s Cubes because prices keep changing.”
Foreign investors are back. The time has come and there is a probability that they will buy either plantation or shipping companies or financials which form the core industries in Malaysia. Tech companies, not so much given its recent run-up.

Oil price will shoot up, inflation will rear its ugly head, Fed will raise rates, markets will have severe correction
MISC will indirectly benefit from oil price increase, along with other benefiaciary like commodity oil palm stocks
When natural gas supply is disrupted via pipe from Russia to Europe with the invasion of Ukrain, The world, or Europe now can only depends on LNG which can be shipped, there is only limited number of LNG ships in the world around 600+. MISC is now in the sweet spot

"Amidst this volatile backdrop, the Petroleum and Product Shipping segment has continued to improve the quality of its income and balance sheet through its shuttle tanker business and asset rejuvenation with greener-fueled newbuildings," said Rajalingam.
On the marine and heavy engineering segment, Rajalingam said the group is cautiously optimistic on the heavy engineering sub-segment in view of prolonged supply chain disruptions and high steel prices.
While the reopening of international borders has contributed to the marine sub-segment's turnaround, soaring global gas prices and robust LNG demand are expected to see vessel owners deferring dry-docking.
For its offshore business segment, Rajalingam said it will remain focused on executing the project on hand, with its financial performance supported by the existing portfolio of long-term contracts.
