    Just for the dividend....

    I tend to think pricing to SFL is overextended at this point. The questions are whether you like your entry cost to yield. Do you understand that 5 cents each quarter is a variable dividend subject to change or elimination. And are you willing to ride out a difficult cycle where shipping rates could go lower for periods of time including a slowing economy. SFL has longer term leasing contracts and less subject to the vagaries of the overnight shipping rate market but there may be a time when expirations come and re-lease rates are lower.
