The preferred stock is of particular interest to investors who are looking for income. I have analysed the common and preferred D stocks of Safe Bulkers previously in 2015. The premise of the investment case for value investors is roughly the same, but some of the data are different.
Safe Bulkers has a reported loss after impairments and depreciation. A value investor will need to make his or her own judgement about the importance of impairment and depreciation when analysing the earnings exhibit. I do provide guidance in the analysis for different types of value investor when considering an investment in the SB common stock.
The safety of the preferred stock income stream is important for a value investor. The report covers the relationship between earnings and interest owed and preferred dividend obligations as one measure of the safety of the income stream. The report also looks at the value of the different securities in the capital structure of Safe Bulkers Inc to assess the safety of value of the preferred series. Any investment in the preferred series has some risk due to the high debt levels at Safe Bulkers.
