Perhaps a couple of these could be phrased as questions and asked at the up-coming AGM?  Would be worthwhile to hear management feedback on a couple of these topics.  rate and reply


Oh they know. The stock does suffer from lack of liquidity and size so most mutual funds will give it a pass. Even holding it in my TD Waterhouse account gives me limited margin as the powers that more


I honestly do not know why this stock isn't $ 25. plus. Extremely well run, great balance sheet, prints money, 4% dividend and yet it trades between a real narrow band. i guess it's not more

RE:RE:RE:Dividend Increase?

I'd imagine there will be some sort of capital return announced next quarter.  If you're interested in quarterly results they are avialable on  They have to do more

No. It's already run like it's a private company so why would the controlling shareholders bother? Maybe if someone like CN or CP decided to get into shipping but they're too busy more


Right?? :) Do you suspect it will be taken private anytime soon?  rate and reply


Why is this company public? Would anyone notice if it wasn't?  No insider transactions for years. Options and "plans" for mgmt don't count. 1X book, PE is 8, yield is 4%. more
