Year-to-date, Teekay LNG Partners LP (NYSE:TGP) stock lost 28.7% and on June 24th it had a closing price of $11.26. Here is what Horos Asset Management said:

“In the case of Teekay LNG, the company that owns LNG carriers, it has coverage of long-term contracts signed with customers with low counterparty risk, which is particularly critical in these times of economic paralysis, as there is fear that customers will request the suspension of agreed payments due to force majeure. This contract coverage guarantees stability in its cash flow generation for the coming years regardless of the degree of utilization of the asset by the customer and the price of LNG (take-or-pay contracts), which allows the company to reduce debt and reward its shareholders in a very attractive way, both through steady dividend increases and opportunistic share buybacks.”
