Diana Shipping (DSX) is one of the top 20 stocks on your dividend list. DSX had a substantial dividend for the 2007/08 period but then eliminated it during the economic collapse. Is it your opinion that a dividend will soon be reinstated - is that why the stock is on your list?

A have gotten a few questions on DSX. I did sell about a third of my DSX holdings in November 2007 at $43 a share. I am still hold DSX as a long term value play of commodity prices and the future growth of China and India. I do see the possibility of paying a dividend again in 2010.

Chief Executive Simeon Palios said the company was not pressured by banks to suspend its dividend. Instead it is looking to preserve cash to purchase assets at rock-bottom prices. “By suspending dividend we free up cash to make investments such as vessel acquisition, which would deliver significant returns over the next several years,” Palios said.

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Natasha Boyden said she is encouraged by Diana’s dividend suspension because it allows the company to retain free cash flow in order to take advantage of opportunities. “Due to the company's low leverage, we believe the dividend suspension is not a reflection of any liquidity issues, but rather an indication of the company's financial strength and desire to grow the fleet,” she said.
