Safe Bulkers (SB) reports 2nd quarter 2011 financial results

Safe Bulkers (SB) announced its 2nd quarter 2011 financial results earlier today.  The earnings miss will probably drop the stock price a bit, but that is good news for those of us who want to buy below $7.00 per share.  The dividend is still safe.  I haven't examined the balance sheet yet for changes.
 
Here are the highlights from the beginning of the press release:
