On Aug 19 Maersk, the worlds largest operator of container ships, reported a Q2 profit increase of 25% over 2013, driven largely by volume increases and resulting operational efficiencies.
Tiny Box Ships Inc (TEU) operates just 9 mid-size container ships, but on September 3 it will report a one year extension and 35% rate increase on 2 of those ships beginning September 1. While this won't impact a likely Q2 loss, these two data points indicate a return to industry profitability and an improved outlook due to a correction in industry capacity ratios.
TEU will see an out-sized benefit of the improved climate, because, through some very choppy seas, it has maintained a strong balance sheet, with a .71 debt/equity ratio, while it's stock has been swamped. Today at $1.32, it's trailing P/E is 6.01, and it is trading at just .14 book; yes that is POINT 14 Book, or .44 of NAV, providing both substantial upside potential and comfortable margin of safety that value investors have had such a hard time fishing for as of late.
One more quarter of rough water, and TEU will finally be in for some clear sailing.

I am long on TEU. A lot of investors have bailed on them. The market will come around & they are poised to take quick advantage of the up tick in shipping.

This company is so golden, it hurts to even say it.
Nor only will it outperform based on its niche market, but it will expand. This is a money making company.

Good investment in my perspective, with good dividends, the pay out ratio now is more reasonable than in the past year, I think that in long term, the industry have potential, but right now is somewhat risky this industry in my opinion is dependable of GDP, in the way that the GDP improve the industry must improve together with it, and vice verse if the GDP get worst the industry will suffer and not only of less growth demand also of high cost of operation. (Inflation because the deflation of cost take time)

This industry is very competitive, the are a lot of competitors, in severe problems, this is of advantage for the companies that keep profitable, but here in short term exists right now more risks than rewards, risks like for example of how will react the investors when see their yield reduced, to less of the half. Risk of a recession in the economies, with I think will happen very easy when the sequester and the new taxes start to feel in the business via less profit margins.

By another part the stocks is near of support around $4.00 by second time, so may be the support hold a second time. My strategy is very simple is buy some at this price and in the case the stock plunge below support start to accumulate shares with more aggressiveness for long term, actual yield at 11% I think is enough for compensate risks in the long term in the way the stock continue in downtrend the yield will raise therefore the risk of enter is more compensated, better reward. The second point to accept the risks if at a yield of 16% annually ( around $3.00 zone) 11% is good for start the first position in my perspective. (Long term investments require patience)

TEU management is purchasing shares at $7/share and has warrants for more at $7.50/share. The price is unbelievably low for a company providing a 17% dividend yield.

Huge dividend of 18%, plus this is a super solid business with orders already maxed out for years to come - how can this stock NOT go up? Plus, at 18% dividend, you're doubling your money every 4 years!! (by the "Rule of 72").
