    Sis DeepBlue...

    What you just described is no coincidence.
    It happened because the nice Folks here make it happen.
    You see, we start a new discussion thread on the 1st day of every calendar month.
    You know postings here do fly at quite a fast pace and something you post today becomes buried deep into the pages after a few days.
    To look for a posting can be an awfully daunting task.
    So to make that a little easier ... er... just a teeny weeny bit little in fact... we start a new discussion thread on the 1st day of every month.
    And ANYONE here can do it. Just click on "Post New Thread" and name it "The Trading Floor - (month and year)".
    After that, post a link at the previous thread to remind and inform people that a new thread has been opened and to provide a convenient
    access to the new thread simply with a click on the link.
    Starting a new thread every month has another advantage - when you click REFRESH, the server dont have to reload every posting starting
    from Oct 2011 till present date. That's tens of thousands of postings, mind you. It will slow down the downloading considerably each time
    we refresh the page.

    So to answer your query, the creation of a new discussion thread is man-made. Not system generated.

    SINGAPORE (April 30): China's Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings is considering a possible investment in troubled peer China Huarong Energy, formerly known as China Rongsheng, its executive chairman said on Thursday.

    Ren Yuanlin said the company was still in early talks with stakeholders, and expected to make a decision on the investment by end-June.

    "The government, banks, and Rongsheng's major shareholder all hope we can be part of the deal, but whether or not we will get in depends on the asset price," he told reporters at a post-earnings briefing in Singapore, where the company is listed.

    "We are not interested in anyone else but Rongsheng."

    Yangzijiang, in which Ren owns a 26 percent stake and is the biggest shareholder, is one of China's biggest shipbuilders, and the country's most profitable listed shipyard.

    Hong Kong-listed China Rongsheng recently changed its name to China Huarong after expanding into oil and gas development and production.

    It is one of China's largest private shipbuilders, and has been struggling with high debt and a slowdown in the shipbuilding industry in recent years.

    SINGAPORE (April 30): Shipbuilder COSCO Corporation Singapore on Thursday posted a 94 percent slide in first-quarter profit, and said weak oil prices makes a recovery in the offshore marine market uncertain.

    COSCO Corp, a subsidiary of Chinese state-owned maritime conglomerate China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company, posted a quarterly net profit of $766,000, a slide from $12.6 billion in the same year ago period.

    Revenue also fell 4.6 percent to $991.2 million, dragged by weak performance in dry bulk shipping and shipyard businesses.

    Trade and other receivables, or money owed to the company, had risen to its highest in at least 12 years at the end of the quarter to $4.9 billion, partly due to an increase in dues from customers in the marine engineering segment.

    "New orders have declined since 2014 and some customers may delay accepting or refuse to accept delivery of vessels upon completion," COSCO Corp said in a statement.

    "The pace of any recovery from the current situation remains uncertain," it added.

    A over 40-percent slide in crude oil prices since mid-2014 has sapped new orders for offshore drilling rigs and support vessels, a sector Chinese shipbuilders such as COSCO Corp have expanded into over the past few years.

    The company's outstanding order book stood at $8.1 billion, a drop from $8.4 billion at the end of 2014, the company said.
