DryShips ( DRYS ) - Baltic Shipping Index Turns Higher

For the first time in awhile, the Baltic Shipping Index has turned higher. This is making stocks like DryShips ( DRYS ), Excel Marinetime ( EXM ), TBSI International ( TBSI ), and Diana Shipping ( DSX ) to all move higher.

Out of all of these, I really like DryShips ( DRYS ). Now that the bottom has been established around $65 last week, I think it is set to move higher to test the $85 level. Drys hasn't closed over this level in awhile! I believe a close over $85 would start a nice uptrend and break out.

Trading Drys - While DRYS is $74 right now, I will be buying any dips under the $70 level. I think the trend is changing as we speak from downtrend to uptrend. Keep an eye on Drys and keep an eye on the baltic shipping index!

PDO Pyramid Oil reports Earnings - Stock Up 13% 8-13-08

Pyramid Oil ( PDO ) just came out with Earnings at 9am...just a few mintues ago here on 8-13-08.

Earnings again look incredible. Keep in mind during the quarter the company did a 5/4 stock split that is not accounted for on most stock charts.

Pyramid Oil PDO earned .24 cents per share vs .10 a year ago or 154% increase....revenue was 2.1 million vs 1.1 a year ago.

Last quarter PDO earned .22 cents per share vs .02 a year ago! ( these are numbers pre split, keep this in mind! )

Technical Analysis: PDO has resistance at $13...a close over this level would be very bullish....strong support at $9


Second quarter revenue increased 91% to $2.1 million from $1.1 million in last year's second quarter. Approximately 93% of the increase resulted from higher oil and gas prices, which increased by approximately $57.19 per equivalent barrel of oil versus last year's second quarter. Operating income increased by 226% to $1.2 million versus $362,000 in the second quarter a year ago. Net income improved by 154% to $908,000, or $0.24 per diluted share ($0.19 per diluted share after a 5-for-4 stock split that became effective July 7, 2008) from $357,000, or $0.10 per diluted share ($0.08 per diluted share, post split) in the second quarter last year.
Through six months, Pyramid reported revenue of $3.7 million, up 92% versus revenue of $1.9 million in the same period a year ago. Operating income increased 372% to $1.9 million from $406,000 in the six-month period last year. Net income increased 320% to $1.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share ($0.37 per diluted share, post split) from $415,000, or $0.11 per diluted share ($0.09 per diluted share, post split) in the 2007 six-month period.

John Alexander, president and CEO, said, "Our strong second quarter performance helped fuel solid cash flow from operations, which through six months had increased 183% to $1.7 million versus the comparable period last year. We expect to elevate our oil and gas production rates during the second half of the year, and are therefore optimistic about our prospects for continued strong top- and bottom-line financial results."

Potash ( POT ) stock ready for a bounce? POT Technical Analysis 8-13-08

Last week I wrote about Potash when it was on the verge of breaking that key support level of $190. POT has wrestled with that level many times over the past few months and when the stock finally closed below this level, all hell broke loose! Potash and all the AG stock were beaten down with the rest of the commodities stocks.

So what now? Well, Potash has some major ground to gain back before it can be a stable stock again. This breakdown in Potash shares was the first MAJOR breakdown in a few years. The stock is damaged big time. But are investors missing something? Are they missing the fact the demand for Potash as a product remains strong? Are investors missing that POT stock trades at only 7.8 times 2009 earnings?

Looking at my POT technical analysis stock chart, we have that support now at $157 which will be very crucial. $175 is also your line of resistance as this was the low a few months ago before it ran to $240. If Potash can close above $175 & $190 it will be back! Until then, buy the dips and sell the rips!
