Guru Investment Theses on Golar LNG Ltd

Baron Funds Comments on Golar LNG Ltd. - Feb 08, 2016

Golar LNG Ltd. (NASDAQ:GLNG) is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipping, regasification and liquefaction company. During 2015, Golar worked on a gas liquefaction project in Cameroon. While we think this project represents a great long-term investment opportunity, declining oil prices made LNG less attractive. In addition, LNG carriers have been trading at day rates that do not cover operational expenses. As a result, Golar’s stock price fell. We have exited our Golar position. (Gilad Shany)
