Management at New York-listed International Seaways are not the types to ever describe their business approach as “boring”, paint competitors as “flashy” or lure investors with “gimmicks”.

That is not the style of chief executive Lois Zabrocky or chief financial officer Jeffrey Pribor, who use words like “balanced” and “disciplined” to describe their approach to capital allocation.

Nothing is stopping TradeWinds from using those words, and we have heard such remarks applied by some market observers.
