The company has diluted the shares by over 1000% in the last five years, which is the largest reason for the decline in price. The CEO is known to be extremely rude as well and does not care about shareholders. When he was once criticized by shareholders, he said, "If you don't like it, you don't have to be here. Sell the stock." I'm not exactly sure how a CEO like this is going to increase shareholder value.
Of course, many of you that may want exposure to the shipping sector, should look at companies such as Navios Maritime (NM) and Frontline (FRO). Navios pays a 7% dividend and is a nice play on the commodity sector as it primarily works with agricultural exporters.
