What: Shares of dry bulk shipper DryShips
So what: Global Hunter Securities initiated coverage on the company with a buy rating, causing a frenzy in early trading. The euphoria didn't last long, and shares are now up only about 3% on a day when the market is also up nicely.
Now what: At The Motley Fool, we don't take analyst upgrades too seriously. I certainly wouldn't buy into this pop because of an upgrade, and with dry bulk rates still depressed, I would be hesitant buying the stock at any price. The company's biggest asset is a majority stake in Ocean Rig
