Just last week, one of those Fools, NJ7, summed up the bull case for our community:

[G]reat balance sheet. The profit margin is over 10% and there is a robust $0.15 quarterly dividend. The management is shared with Diana Shipping, another company I'm bullish on, and management would not likely have spun-off an unsuccessful company. I like the acquisitions of new containerships and the prospects long term. What motivated me to put real money into this company is their continuing acquisition of new vessels, which will be essential long term. ... The future looks bright if Diana Containerships can do this in a still slow/recovering global economy and shipping market.

Of course, despite its four-star rating, Diana may not be your top choice.
