It appears that Diana Shipping is fairly priced at $11.75 (P/B ~ 75%). Growth drivers moving forward include economic factors that point to a declining trend in the price of iron ore. As the price goes down, China will import more higher quality iron ore, as the cost of domestic production is much higher than foreign mining operations. There are also fewer new ships coming on line.

This company has next to no debt and large cash on hand. They have been using this cash to purchase new ships at discounts as the industry is in turmoil due to low shipping rates. Once shipping rates turn north, DSX will be in an excellent position against all it's competitors.

Least leveraged public dry bulk shipper is ready to expand shipping capacity as competitors struggle to survive through the downturn. Over-capacity likely to last into 2013-2014, and this gives Diana time to consolidate capacity under its roof for an eventual global recovery. This investment will undoubtedly require patience, but at 5x depressed earnings is likely to generate very nice long term returns.

will shipping go away? when it comes back who do you want to own? strong management, low debt, right sized, big dividend (when it comes back) - it never takes as long to come back as people say

I am a big fan of this stock. I ran through a number of shipping stocks, all of which were loaded down with debt and had poor equity and asset returns, as well as profit margins. But Diana shipping has solid margins, stopped its dividend as the global financial crisis was growing, built up a hoard of cash, and has weathered the storm well overall. Of course, it has taken a hit, but is in dramatically better shape than its competitors. If Diana can do this in a horrible market for shippers, it should be very successful when the inevitable global recovery/baltic dry index recovery takes place. A return of the $3.31 in dividends it paid in 2008 before it stopped its dividend is also an attractive prospect. DCIX is another stock to consider, as it shares the same management and was spun off from DSX, but it has a very short track record, so I opted to invest in DSX despite the dividend DCIX offers. A resolution of the Greek crisis might provide a boost to this stock.

Bulk shipping will return over the next 5 years.I think the maximum negative outlook is priced into these stocks.

Goods will need to be shipped even in a down economy. Diana has more cash on hand than long term debt, and will be able to weather the current economic storm better than it's rivals that have a ton of debt. I would expect DSX to gain as the shock wears off, especially if they re-establish their dividend.

All of these shipping companies are value traps. They look cheap based on traditional valuation methods (P/E ratios, P/B, etc...). However, when you look at their cash flow we see something completely different. Companies like this are and always will be very capital intensive. In fact, the capital expenditures (required maintenance of ships) are so high that most of the time these companies can’t earn enough cash to cover them. Now, I don't know about you, but this doesn't sound like a company I'd feel safe investing in. This company is slowly taking on more debt, that's the only way it’s able to cover its increasing costs. In the long run a business like this will surely fail and its stock price will continue its steady decline.
