Teekay Tankers (TNK) is a shipper of Crude Oil. With crude oil plummeting, why would shippers be busy? Well, holding spot price crude on a ship till the price improves can be a hedge fund's game. It looks to me that this might be what's going on.

Notice the SCTR broke above 75 at the end of October.
