    From Stifel research website

    Star Bulk Carriers Corp. (SBLK)
    Star Bulk is one of the largest dry bulk companies in the world, with exposure to nearly every major asset class. With our expectation that the dry bulk market is improving, dry bulk rates and asset values should move higher. Star Bulk has reasonable leverage and significant operating leverage due to its primarily fixed cost nature of operating the business. Importantly, as the largest public dry bulk company, the shares should have the best trading liquidity, which should offer the best in class valuation. In addition, as fuel demand increases, investments in scrubbers should help increase rate premiums captured by scrubber equipped vessels. Our recommendation to buy the shares is based on the expectation that rates will get to mid-cycle levels, but we believe those expectations could prove to be conservative in time.

    Some of you will undoubtedly already be aware of the following two items, but since I haven't heard any reference to either, I figured I'd cut & post 'em up. Both articles are on YF. The first I excerpted below, but the full original can be found here...

    Star Bulk posted a presentation to their website this morning. In it they highlight $370.3mm of cash as of September 9th, which is just after paying the recent dividend. The dividend policy calls for $268.8mm of cash on the balance sheet, with excess cash paid in dividends. That would imply roughly $100mm of excess cash at September 9th, or $1.00 per share.

    Two unknowns: 1) Has the company paid their debt amortization of ~$47mm per quarter yet (i.e. does that get paid at quarter end or all along the way during the quarter) and 2) Will the pace of cash generation match the pace thus far. Through Sept 9th, the company generated ~$1.4mm of cash per day (100/71 days).

    My base case scenario would have the debt getting paid along the way and that they earn the $1.4mm for the rest of the quarter, which would get us to ~$130mm of cash or a dividend of $1.25 per share.

    Best case scenario: IF the $47mm of debt is already paid and the $100mm excess cash is AFTER debt repayment, then they generated $147mm of cash thus far ($2.05mm per day). At $2.0mm per day during the rest of the quarter, that would get us to $142mm available for the dividend, or roughly $1.40.

    Personally, I am now targeting $1.25 for the 3Q dividend.

    Anthony is a must for any trader. Their watchlist which covers pre-market movers is one of the best researched in the industry. I don’t start trading without reading their daily email each morning!
