    Nearing 52-week Lows

    10% from 52-week lows.

    A hickup in market, and DSX will smash those lows.

    Since 1-yr ago, vessel prices have risen. DSX fleet value increased. DSX earnings, and earnings visibility increased. DSX dividend soaring.

    Just a thought....but who's thinking??

    • Do you know why we're down over another dollar in AH? What the heck is going on? Didn't we drop enough during regular hours? I'm getting tired of defending Diana....people are telling me to get out of shipping but I still believe. Is something wrong with me?

    • I'm looking at this market as a terrific opportunity. Once it hits the 52 week low I will be making regular purchases up or down. The divy is too good to resist.

      • Buying on the lows would be just swell if you've got the cash and good on ya, but i and i have this dear Diana equity ad nauseum and gotta pay those '07 taxes aforementioned. Was taking my mother-in-law for a lung biopsy and hence a rare day away from the market... probably much better to have been at the hospital than watch the crash and burn.

        Now figuring on hunkering down and riding it out, minimize construction expenditures, minimize down payment on second for said mom-in-law-house-next-door, borrow at soon to be record low mortgage rates... AND collect a ridicloiusly large dividend check every freakin' quarter until the economy turns around. Thinking a couple of years ought to do it... maybe five.

        Can't think of another equity to be stuck with that could possibly be any better.

        Best of luck to all Diana lovers. Be back again for the next quarterly if not lurking periodically.
