I bought pretty heavy into this company - at least I put everything that I could afford to lose in. If the demand for shipping increases, this stock could be a big winner. However, if the economy stays in the stall that it is in, it will gradually eat this investment alive. I guess I'm betting that shipping will at least show an uptick within the year. If not, bankruptcy is a real problem. I doubt the shareholders would get anything from the salvage value of the company because all of this would be reserved for creditors. It could go either way, but I think the likelyhood of at least some recovery is high enough to make me want to gamble.
