Courage Marine: Dual listing.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

On 14 November 2010, I said that "It would have to take a very bad 4Q 2010 to destroy whatever the company has achieved in positive numbers thus far in 2010."

Although the BDI has been declining and "even if 4Q 2010 does not turn in any profit which I believe is unlikely, net profit this year is already 120x higher than the whole of 2009!" So, I firmly held on, believing that the management would declare a generous dividend when the time comes.

Courage Marine gapped up today as it opened at 22c. My overnight sell queue was filled as I reduced my exposure to the counter by half. For me, locking in a gain now is like getting the dividend in advance. After all, the declining BDI is likely to have a negative impact on Courage Marine's earnings, going forward. The BDI has already broken the previous low and it is yet unclear where the next low would be but with greater increase in bulk shipping capacity in the near future, upside could be limited as supply outstrips demand.

What would I do with my remaining position in Courage Marine? I would hold on to see if price could go higher either through further developments in its plan to dual list in Hong Kong or through a possibly generous dividend payout.

Looking at the chart, immediate support is currently at 21c although it seems precarious as MFI and RSI spiked into overbought regions. Any weakness could see the counter pulling back to 20c which offers a stronger support and would correct the overbought condition. Further upside could see Courage Marine retest a many times tested resistance level at 23c. I would be tempted to sell more then.
