Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Investors are jumping back on board DryShips
So what: Net voyage revenues fell to $81.7 million from $106.7 million a year earlier, but the company's subsidiary Ocean Rig
Now what: The trading action was very unusual today with shares dropping 10% and then rising 10% as the day went on. Dry bulk rates are still low, and I don't see a reason to buy DryShips after reporting another loss. If anything, Ocean Rig is more interesting since it has exposure to the exploding ultra-deepwater drilling market without the exposure to dry bulk shipping.
