Safe Bulkers will report 4Q2010 and full year results on February 9th, 2011.

It will be interesting to see the effect of the huge drop in the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) on Safe Bulkers’ earnings.  The BDI stood at 2,741 at the start of 4Q2010.  By the end of 4Q2010 it had fallen 968 points to 1,773.  It dropped 35.3% during 4Q2010.  What will be the effect on Safe Bulkers earnings?  I’m guessing that they will be down less than 10 per cent because a high percentage of their ships are rented out long term.  Only a small portion of their fleet is time-chartered (spot prices).
