In 2010, before we decided to start AimHighProfits Penny Stock Newsletter, one of our stock picks was OceanFreight (Nasdaq: OCNF) which was teetering on Nasdaq Exchange delisting due to its inability to maintain a price above $1. Dryships (Nasdaq: DRYS) bought OCNF for a 3,400% profit in 7 months.
Founded in 1993, Winland Ocean Shipping’s core business international bulk cargo transportation, essentially a dry bulk shipper. Based in China, theyhave established themselves to be a well-known shipping enterprise. With an ocean shipping fleet of 11 vessels, WLOL has a self-owned carrying capacity of over 240,000 tons with the ability to provide a carrying capacity of about 1,000,000 tons monthly with shipping lines to all the major ports around the globe.
Recent Financial History:
BDI movement over the past few years indicates that the global shipping industry is currently at a historically low level. In 2008, the penny stock company reported revenue of $84.2 million with net income of $19.1 million. Revenue dropped to $50.2 million in 2009 with a net loss of $7.0 million.
2010 was slightly better with an increase in revenue to $59.2 million and net income of $3.1 million. Although the 10K filed 2011 results showed no increase to net income and a minimal increase in revenues, the stock split from March, 2011 will most likely hold back the share price from returning to $1.40 – $1.01 level.
Bottom Line: Shipping is a cyclical industry. WLOL disposed of the 3 older shipping vessels which decreased their shipping capacity by 73,000 Deadweight Tonnage (DWT). However, Winland Ocean Shipping purchased a 32,000 DWT vessel and built 2 57,000 DWT dry bulk vessels which increased their capacity by 146,000 DWT.
Can the share price of WLOL return to the $1 level? Perhaps but the recent positive financial results should have very little affect on the penny stock other than speculative buying based on takeover possibilities.
