It pays a 3.82% dividend and Cramer interviewed a CEO several weeks ago, can't remember if it was SB or DSX, and the outlook was rosy for shippers. DSX doesn't pay a dividend btw. Plus it closed above $5 which is a *magical8 number in that brokers and institutions don't want to invest in companies that fall below that figure. plus the ex-div date is next Wednesday the 22nd, so that could make it a dividend play. Plus the book value is $5.55 according to Yahoo. So, a dividend means they are making money, the outlook for shippers is good, and it sells below book value. I like it.
