What Lies Ahead for GasLog Partners (GLOP) in Q4 Earnings?

Read MoreHide Full Article

GasLog Partners (GLOP - Free Report) is scheduled to report fourth-quarter 2022 results on Jan 26, before market open.

The partnership’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the last four quarters (missing the mark in the remaining one), the average beat being 40.46%.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter earnings per unit has remained flat at 72 cents over the past 60 days.

Against this backdrop, let’s discuss the factors that might have impacted GasLog Partners’ performance in the December quarter.

We expect GasLog Partners’ performance in the to-be-reported quarter to have been aided by the recovery in the overall shipping market as economic activities pick up the pace with the easing of COVID-related restrictions.

More specifically, GLOP's fourth-quarter 2022 revenues are likely to have benefited from growth in revenues from vessels operating in the spot market and an improvement of the LNG shipping spot and term market.

Although economic activities picked up from the pandemic gloom, supply-chain disruptions continue to dent shipping stocks like GasLog. Increased operating costs are also limiting bottom-line growth. Costs are likely to have been steep in fourth-quarter 2022 at GLOP due to supply-chain troubles.

The spike in fuel costs is also flaring up the operating expenses of the industry players.
