The U.S. oil boom is bad news for the business of hauling crude oil across the oceans, and isn't likely to pick up any time soon. It means a poor outlook at best for the stocks in the sector, Jefferies says, which projects Frontline (FRO) will lose $2.33/share this year in earnings and $2.09 next; North American Tankers (NAT) also is expected to lose money this year and next.
