DryShips Loses $1.02 Billion in Q4 on One-Time Charges (DRYS)Mar 25, 2009Drybulk shipping company DryShips Inc. (DRYS) reported over $1 billion in losses for the fiscal fourth quarter, hurt mainly by goodwill impairment charges and contract termination fees. The Athens, Greece-based company said it lost $1.02 billion, or $18.42 per share in the quarter, compared with a profit of $194.4 million, or $5.35 per share, in the year-ago period. These results include a non-cash loss of $700.5 million, or $12.68 per share, on impairment charges derived from its acquisition of offshore drilling company Ocean Rig ASA. DryShips, which had previously owned a stake in the company, purchased the remaining shares of Ocean Rig in July 2008. Excluding these and other various one-time items, DryShips saw adjusted earnings of 43 cents per share. On average, Wall Street analysts expected adjusted profits of 66 cents per share. Net voyage revenue, excluding voyage expenses, totaled $117.1 million, down 47% from the year-ago period's total of $223.5 million. Analysts expected revenue of $206.8 million for the latest quarter. In order to control costs, the company has canceled 17 vessel acquisition contracts totaling $2 billion. Charges relating to three of these cancellations will result in a $116.4 million loss in the fiscal first quarter. DryShips, whose stock has lost over 97% of its value since hitting all-time highs in mid 2008, said it is in talks with lenders regarding additional covenant waivers on its debt. Shares of DryShips fell 78 cents, or -14%, in morning trading Wednesday. The Bottom Line Shares of DRYS are way off their all-time highs of $116 hit in 2007. The stock is trading near all-time technical lows and support is basically shaky. If the shares can manage to stop the downtrend, we see initial overhead resistance at the $7-9 levels. We do not currently rate this non-dividend paying stock, but do follow the name closely. DryShips Inc. (DRYS) suspended dividend payouts back in late January.

The company, which hauls dry bulk commodities like iron ore and coal, has changed its chartering strategy by employing its vessels in long-term charter contracts that provides revenue stability.

The company has a dividend yield of 4.16%, base don Friday's closing stock price of $19.25. The stock quite a run from May of 2006 when shares traded as low as $9 to highs one year ago of $123.50. We will be watching the volatile shares closely, as there may be some short-term opportunities that will pop up.

DryShips Could Suffer Greatly from Commodity Price Drop (DRYS)Sep 2, 2008DryShips (DRYS) will be another name in focus today, as commodity prices are dropping all over the place this morning. The drybulk shipper has seen its stock struggle as of late, dropping 35% in the last three months. The stock's price action seems to be dictating even lower prices may be in the cards, so we are taking a closer look to draw out the potential scenario for investors that have a short-term focus. The Bottom Line The stock will need to hold the August 5th low of $66.30, as the next area of any support looks to be in the $52-55 area. If the stock can hold above the August 5th low, then its needs to get back over the $82 area for a potential move back up. When recent high-fliers such as DryShips experience these big pullbacks, opportunities may arise, and we like to outline the possible scenarios for investors. Remember, these "hot money" stocks are better suited for investors with shorter-term time lines. Until the stock can sustain above certain key levels, we think the long-term picture will remain unclear.

Dryships Business Running Aground (DRYS)Aug 22, 2008DryShips Inc. (DRYS) reported second-quarter profit that nearly tripled, helped by the sale of three ships, but its results were well below what analysts had expected. Revenues tripled during the quarter to $302.7 million, but EPS came in nearly $1 below Thomson Reuters estimates. The company is continuing with its fleet renewal and expansion plan to replace older tonnage with newer and larger vessels. The Bottom Line The stock had been a high-flier up until October of last year, where even with commodity prices continuing to make new highs, this stock started sliding, and is down nearly 45% from those levels. The company has a mediocre dividend yield of 1.09%, based on last night's closing stock price of $73.40. We would avoid trying to catch this down-trending stock, or other shipping stocks in general, none of which we are recommending at this time. Dryships (DRYS) is not a recommended dividend stock at this time, holding a Dividend.com rating of 3.0 out of 5 stars.
