Diana Containerships Inc. Stock Downgraded (DCIX)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Diana Containerships (Nasdaq: DCIX) has been downgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been a generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • DCIX has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 8.89% from its price level of one year ago. Looking ahead, we do not see anything in this company's numbers that would change the one-year trend. It was down over the last twelve months; and it could be down again in the next twelve. Naturally, a bull or bear market could sway the movement of this stock.
  • The gross profit margin for DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC is rather high; currently it is at 51.90%. Despite the high profit margin, it has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, DCIX's net profit margin of 15.00% compares favorably to the industry average.
  • Compared to other companies in the Marine industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC underperformed against that of the industry average and is significantly less than that of the S&P 500.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.45, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 290.87% to $7.15 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, DIANA CONTAINERSHIPS INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 13.66%.

Diana Containerships Inc. owns and operates containerships in Greece. The company engages in the seaborne transportation of semi-finished and finished consumer and industrial products. The company has a P/E ratio of 26.7, below the average transportation industry P/E ratio of 37.9 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Diana Containerships has a market cap of $166.1 million and is part of the services sector and transportation industry. Shares are up 13.3% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday.
