Dry Bulk Shipping Stocks Rally

Tickerspy’s Dry Bulk Shipping Stock Index (*DBULK) rose 5.1% today, beating the S&P 500 by 1.3.%.  Dry shipping stocks were given a boost by upgrades today.  Deutsche Bank upgraded Genco (NYSE: GNK), Euroseas Ltd (NASDAQ: ESEA), and Eagle Bulk Shipping (NASDAQ: EGLE) today.  All three made major moves today.

Over half of the dry shipping stocks in the Tickerspy index has risen over 100% off of their 52-week lows.  The industry was placed in serious jeopardy as global trade entered a state of decline during the credit crunch.  Shipping rates fell dramatically as recently as this summer, but have been on the rise in recent months.
