  • Should You Invest in Shipping Companies?

    By Ishtiaq Ahmed - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: DSX, DRYS, NM

    The shipping industry is the backbone of the global trade--almost 90% of international trade is done through the industry. However, over the last few years the industry has suffered heavily due to the slowdown in the global economy and oversupply of vessels.

    Most of the shipping giants experienced more than a 70% decline in their share price. However, a fall in price does not always generate an opportunity to invest more »

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: BGFV, FHCO, NM

    A portfolio should always have a small cap, one that promises big profit and could soon grow into a mid-cap. Finding one that fits the bill isn't always easy, but these three could reward a little extra due diligence.

  • Why You Need to Think Twice Before Investing in a Greek Dry Bulk Shipper

    By Fani Kelesidou - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: DSX, DRYS, NM

    Over the past few years, amid a global slump in demand for dry bulk commodities and a disturbing tonnage oversupply, the marine transportation business has not been on fire. The dry bulk market has a long way to go before it can exit risk territory. But the year-to-date run-up in many shipping stocks, as well as analysts' expectations for a substantial lift in Chinese iron ore imports, suggest that there more »

  • Don't Ignore Shipping's Headwinds

    By Joshua Bondy - January 17, 2013 | Tickers: DSX, DRYS, GNK, NM

    The shipping industry faces a number of challenging headwinds. Quicker turnaround times make on-shoring an attractive proposition. Chinese wages continue to rise and it is expected that in 2015 productivity adjusted Mexican wages will be lower than Chinese wages. If a significant number of factories are moved to Mexico or the United States then this would be negative factor for pacific trade volumes. Geopolitical conflicts should not be ignored; the more »

  • Titanic Returns

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - December 27, 2012 | Tickers: DRYS, NM, NMM, NAT

    Several Christmases ago a family friend and I were talking stocks after the feast and she told me of the fantastic returns she was getting on her portfolio. Then she told me her holdings, almost 20 shipping stocks taking the lion's share. It was as though she had a shipping index ETF. Unfortunately, she hasn't had much reason to boast lately as the shipping stocks have gone south more »

  • What Does the Future Hold for Shippers?

    By Colin Tweel - November 5, 2012 | Tickers: DSX, EGLE, FREE, FRO, NM

    “This is the best time since the Vikings,” said shipping king John Fredricksen of the shipping market on June 1, 2008. At that time, his oil tankers were making $100,000 per day, and some of his drybulk carriers were making even more. Of course, that comment came just as a red-hot 5-year bull market ended in a devastating collapse of the index. Though Fredricksen had been socking away fat more »

  • 5 Shipping Stocks Offering Double-Digit Yields

    By Dr. Osman Gulseven - November 1, 2012 | Tickers: TEU, CPLP, DCIX, NM, NMM, TNP | Editor's Choice

    The shipping industry is considered a tough call. When we refer to the shipping companies headquartered in Greece, the overall picture does not get any better. Greek shippers have a strong name supported by years of successful performance, but the 2008 economic crisis nearly sunk them. However, most of them pay some of the dividend yields in Europe.

    The main question is whether these dividends are sustainable. Well, Greek shippers more »

  • Not All Shippers are a Poor Investment

    By Joshua Bondy - August 30, 2012 | Tickers: DSX, DRYS, KEX, NM, NMM

    It is well known that shipping is currently in a bear market. The market has seen a continued decline in the Baltic Dry Index over of the past couple years and an increase in dry tonnage. Over the near term the majority of shipping stocks are not a great investment although there are still a select number of stocks like Kirby Corp (NYSE: KEX) which show promise.

  • My Big, Fat Greek Dividend Paying Shipping Stocks

    By Jonathan Yates - August 24, 2012 | Tickers: CMRE, DCIX, FRO, NM, SB
