In addition, Instinet analyst Romit Shah said of the stock:

In addition, Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) traded higher on Monday on rating news, in which the company received an upgrade to buy from UBS.

Revenues net of voyage expenses for the period were $106.6 million, a 7.6% increase from the prior-year quarter, while total voyage expenses declined 11.8% as more of the fleet’s vessels were placed under time charters.
