Our Stock of the Week is Star Bulk Carriers (SBLK). SBLK provides tanker transportation services with a fleet of 72 dry bulk ships. It ships iron ore, coal, grain and a variety of other commodities.
With the China War now on hold there should be increased demand for American agriculture products which should help to boost dry bulk shipping rates.
SBLK is estimated to earn $1.26 in 2018 and grow that 56% to $1.96 in 2019. It recently added 15 new ships. In April, Stifel upgrade the stock to buy with a target of $15.
Technically the stock broke out to a new high last week and pulled back to the breakout point around $13. We are looking for renewed momentum on the China news over $13.50. As always we would not chase the stock on the open but would look for strong volume and a strong close to signal that momentum is building.
