    The street..Sell 8/19/12

    So, I bought some more.

    We rate DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC (DCIX) a SELL. This is driven by multiple weaknesses, which we
    believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to
    achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The area that we feel has been the
    company's primary weakness has been its poor profit margins.
    The gross profit margin for DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC is rather high; currently it is at 50.30%. Regardless
    of DCIX's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed
    results of the gross profit margin, DCIX's net profit margin of 15.00% compares favorably to the industry
    Compared to other companies in the Marine industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity,
    DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less
    than that of the S&P 500.
    The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.45, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been
    successful management of debt levels.
    Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 243.80% to $8.16 million when compared to the same
    quarter last year. In addition, DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average
    cash flow growth rate of 10.47%.
    Compared to where it was a year ago today, the stock is now trading at a higher level, and has traded in line
    with the S&P 500. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, we do not believe this stock offers
    ample reward opportunity to compensate for the risks, despite the fact that it rose over the past year.
