One thought on “Scorpio Reports Minimal Loss in 3rd Quarter”

  1. Despite what everyone wants to believe, not Scorpio nor any other “great company”, can beat the fundamentals of an over supplied shipping market. It’s a speculative macro economic timing play against shipping rates…another way to gamble in Monaco.
