    Mar 13, 2013 2:18 PM | about stocks: DSX

    For the quarter ended December 31st, 2012, I estimate that Diana Shipping Inc. (NYSE:DSX) generated basic earnings per common share of $0.07 on net income of $5,500,000. I estimate that TCE Revenues were $46,400,000 and the average TCE rate was $17,800.

    As of December 31st, 2012, I estimate that book capitalization was $1.730 billion including shareholders' equity of $1.270 billion, and debt outstanding of $460 million. Its debt to capitalization ratio stood at 26.7%. I also estimate that DSX had approximately $452 million cash on hand as of the end of the quarter.

    Following the acquisition of M/V Polymnia in Nov 2012, and M/V Myrto & M/V Maia in Jan & Feb 2013, the company currently owns a fleet of 32 dry cargo vessels (consisting of 17 panamax size vessels, two kamsarmax vessels, three post-panamax vessels, and 10 cape size vessels), with a total DWT carrying capacity of 3,541,000 MT, and an average age per vessel of 6.7 years.

    The company has on order two panamax vessels, scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2013, at a contract price of $29 million per vessel.

    Diana Shipping also has a 10.4% interest in Diana Containerships (NASDAQ:DCIX), a publicly traded company specializing in container ships.

    Disclosure: I am long DSX.
