Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star marc64, succinctly summed up the StealthGas bull case for our community:

USA is poised to be a big exporter of natural gas products, along with a trailing list of other nations. Being in the business of shipping NG from places that produce it, to places that don't seems to me a pretty good bet. A company like [StealthGas] with a decent head start, and a track record of profitability and execution seems likely to do very well.
