Safe Bulkers (SB) reported 3Q2011 financials yesterday. It is yielding 9.13%

My current favorite high dividend stock , Safe Bulkers (SB), reported third quarter financials yesterday.

In summary, they will continue to pay their $0.15 quarterly dividend.  Safe Bulker’s dividend currently yields 9.13%.  Their dividend payout ratio remains around a conservative 50% level.  Earnings have decreased a few percentage points consistent with a horrible market in dry bulk shipping.  The balance sheet results were mixed.  Shareholder equity was up good, but current ratio and quick ratio were both down.


I will provide in-depth analysis tomorrow.

CONCLUSION – Safe Bulkers remains a buy below $7.00 per share.  However, worldwide double dip recession will take the American stock market and Safe Bulkers lower.  I think there will be opportunities to buy SB below $5.00 per share.  I’m waiting to get closer to the bottom.

Disclosure: I don’t own Safe Bulkers, but I want to.
