" (8/5/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "While we believe it is a little early for lasting dry bulk recovery, shrinking supply and better than expected demand make the possibility of a 2018 recovery somewhat more feasible. Safe Bulkers operates an extremely high quality fleet which is significant levered to a potential recovery with the balance sheet and contracted cash flow base to offset the risk that it may take a protracted time for a recovery to occur. As a result, we believe the shares are appropriately valued and initiate coverage with a Hold rating and $1.50 target price based on the shares trading near our NAV estimate of $0.35 per share."
