Safe Bulkers (SB) 7.82% dividend yield remains safe and on sale at $7.80 per share

Safe Bulkers (SB) remains on sale at $7.80 per share.  The company pays a $0.15 quarterly dividend that is safe.  The dividend yield for this high dividend stock is 7.82%.  The company has a five year average earning power of $1.50 per share.  And its balance sheet is good, but it could be improved upon.  I think it will improve once a few of its new-build ships begin operating over the next year.

The fundamentals are solid and have not changed.  Follow this link to read many recent articles on Safe Bulkers fundamentals:

The technicals look good for market timing:

·         The continuous commodity indicator (CCI) is in negative territory.  The CCI tends to bottom at stock bottoms.

·         The stock price is barely below the 50 week moving average.  I like buying when the 50 week is below the 200 week moving average, but Safe Bulkers hasn’t been around for 200 weeks yet. 

·         The stock price is also sliding down the lower Bollinger Band.  Stock price bottoms tend to happen when the stock price jumps off the bottom Bollinger Band. 

·         I use the moving average convergence divergence indicator as a confirming indicator.  The MACD is a momentum oscillator based on the difference between two exponential moving averages.  See for a through explanation on each of these technical analysis terms.

You have a good reason to be concerned if you are only going to make a onetime purchase of SB.  This stock will go down if the S&P 500 goes down in reaction to a global double dip recession.  Dry bulk shipping moves the commodities that are necessary in a booming global economy.  A renewal of the global economic bust will drop dry bulk shipping stocks even though SB has long term contracts in place to whether the economic storm.  That will make it an extreme bargain with a huge dividend yield like in 2008 when the stock went below $3.00 per share temporarily.
