As a result, we expect the company to provide a steadily growing distribution level supported by low leverage and long-term secular changes driving demand in the LNG shipping market. … We maintain our Neutral rating, but are lowering our price objective to $33 (from $38) due to an increased 6% yield target (from 5%) on the annualized $2.00 distribution target."
