Shippers have taken it the hard way since the market downturn. Such pressure validates, to some degree, the management decisions to pursue long-term contracts. With P/E of about 10 today, and a strong dividend and balance sheet, this is the sort of stock that interests me. That is not to say this is a risk free play -- when does that ever happen -- and the company's contracts could expire before the sector improves, but we know that buying time is when good companies are in bad times. It's on my short list for my next dividend reinvestment.
