+ Watch PRGN
on My Watchlist
The Company provides drybulk shipping services worldwide.
High insider ownership in a stock trading at less than half book value.
Small shipper beaten down by market jitters and the "assumed" over-supply of ships hitting the industry in 2012, although the industry as a whole rather a rather "aged" fleet, so any increase in supply should be managed easily as shippers retire old vessels.
Bulk shipping will return over the next 5 years.I think the maximum negative outlook is priced into these stocks.
At this price, I'll buy even without the dividend. Management is still intact and debt is the lowest compared to peers (exception DSX, which I also like under 8). You might have to wait a long time for dividends to return though. At least a year until after their competitors go bankrupt and the dust settles.That said, I wouldn't buy this stock above 1.75 until dividends are restored..
Contrarian, value, dividend stock with limited downside risk and great upside potential.
paragon will invest dividend for buy back stock or smaller healthly compay to increase fleet and take out competior to increase futer bulk rate prices.rt
Just closed and reopened pick to reflect adding to position in real life...
low p/e, good dividend yield. really low expectations.
When (not if) the dry bulk shipping sector recovers, this company will benefit
The future of shipping is bright. Current price incorporates a lot of negativity that seems to be unjustified by the numbers available for analysis.
This company is extremely undervalued. I put 10k in at 3.12 and will continue to accumulate regardless of the direction the stock marches. Management took out an equity offering to expand their fleet within the last few months and I believe this was a well timed acquisition that should make way for a turnaround story or explosive growth once the economy recovers. While last quarter PRGN did show a loss contributed to an increase in selling, general, and admin expenses and a large investment in fleet, the loss was deemed reasonable based on the increase in fleet size and related maintenance expense. Some investors were concerned about their related party transaction for maintenance of the ship, but I see this as a great opportunity to decrease variable cost in the future. I expect this stock to outperform for the current year and to show significant long run appreciation. How can you say no to putting your money in company with a book value of .33 and a 6.5% dividend while you wait for the stock to appreciate?
Limited downside potential (it is already down!!!) As long as the recovery comes, we have a winner!
I just don't see the stenght in this stock. Looks to be a easy stock to be manipulated.
Still paying a good dividend (~6.5%) during very hard times for dry bulk shipping. Also, relatively low debt compared to others in the industry. This company will survive and come out ahead of the others. The current stock price (~$3.10) seems to me to be a bargain since the value of a share is likely to double quickly once the economy turns around. Look for a stock price of around $6/share by the end of 2012 if not before.
When this turns around, it's going to reap huge gains.
I like the outlook of shipping stocks.
Again transportation, shipping, unless someone has built a secret bridge or a tunnel to get things from one continent to another in the quantities that ships do it can't stay at these levels.
I like the dividend 7%, and has one of the best debt/equity ratio in the industry, today also I percieved the company give insight of what can be traduced in a good 2011 year, the ship seem are been profitable and will continue profitable, more to add the industry of marine was the only in show gains while the market in general was to the downsize, that was on January 28, 2011 when market was getting a correction, so this sector was the only doing fine more than the Energy sector!!! was in good shape also that day but any way was losing ground.I speculate this sector of marine was up also, in January 28, 2011, because of the news of improving GDP of 3.20%, may be the market percieved that this will be the way of export all the commodities and merchanidise in the 2011.May be the only major backdraw is the market capital that is to small aprox 100 millions doing the stock too volatile.
Getting my toes wet @ $3.36 share. I believe the bottom is in and way oversold!
