Why Is Safe Bulkers Trading Lower Today?

Shares of Safe Bulkers (SB) fell as the market continues to react to the shipping crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company provides marine dry bulk transportation services. However, the stock is still up by more than 100% year-to-date after a rollercoaster 2020, according to Yahoo Finance. Also, supply chains in the shipping industry are under immense pressure amid a dearth of containers, resulting in skyrocketing shipping costs. Recently, the company embarked on an accelerated deleveraging strategy. As part of the plan, the company voluntarily paid a $21.2 million debt as it seeks to maintain an energy-efficient fleet with low leverage.

Why Safe Bulkers Stock Dropped Today

Price moves on the stock market don't always make sense, and I think what happened today to shares of dry bulk shipping company Safe Bulkers (NYSE: SB) is a perfect example of this. For weeks, I've been telling you of a disturbing trend on the Baltic Dry Index (BDI), where prices for the transport of bulk cargo (grains, iron ore, coal, and the like) had taken a turn for the worse, plummeting 26% from their early May highs. If this kept up, I warned, it would be bad news for companies like Castor Maritime or Safe Bulkers, whose fortunes are tied to the prices they can charge for their services -- prices reflected on the BDI.
