Hi,
End of the month which means it's Dry Bulk time.
My portfolio hate the way the month ended, but that's the
market- unpredictable.

BHO* 18.34 17.58 17.95 17.74
DSX 20.25 22.79 22.40 28.05
DRYS 35.38 41.10 43.38 57.32
EXM 22.64 23.69 25.18 38.80

ESEA 11.40 13.35 14.26 14.76


* Zero dividend or no recent dividend


- I thought this sector would not top the performance
of June, and just to make me eat my words, it did.
This was not just topping the previous month,
Incredible!

yes, it happened...39c/qtr for a partial quarter
