There is a significant demand for DRYS drybulk shipping services as China's economy expands increasing the need for imports such as coal and steel.
DRYS is trading at a market cap of only $2.19 billion after the stock has dropped from the $120.00 - $130.00 level. We believe DRYS is attractive at its current level based on its valuations and the economics of its business.
