Just yesterday, one of those Fools, toadaly, tapped the stock as a tempting total-return opportunity:
Tanker stocks are in the tank right now, yet, many are very profitable, such as Knightsbridge. The dividend is at risk though, as the payout ratio is 150%. The stock seems to have already priced in a halving of the dividend. At the current price, you can buy this stock, and expect an 8% dividend with a great chance of capital gains as well.
If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, Knightsbridge may not be your top choice.
