Strong results, raising dividends, plenty of cash and now this........ Under the terms of the settlement, which all parties have agreed will remain confidential, an amount of USD 7m has been received by the Company which will be accounted for as an exceptional item in the Group's accounts for the current financial year, ended 31 December 2012. Amid the lowest shipping rates on record. This is one company to hold!

CKN has been going nowhere for the last year and now the BDI has fallen thru the floor this month. What don't I know?

Due in part to the strengthening of the US dollar in the final months of 2011, Sale and Purchase activity in December and the recent receipt of some long outstanding debts that had been fully provided for, the Group's full year performance will now be ahead of market expectations. Lovely!

CKN is a very sound company. One for the SIPP.

"If they return cash to shareholders, that's also not great news." Well, not to you as you are not a shareholder - I am and would regard it as good news.

Have you considered how many top notch/super-major FTSE 100's and Dow co's are trading under a P/E of 9 atm? If one really had to park money somewhere, there's much safer/larger plays out there imo. This is a bit cyclical and not that predictable. Investors pay for the future, not for what's on the balance sheet, which can quickly get gobbled up by fixed costs or bad acquisitions. Further, even if they have mounds of cash - I can't see where they'd invest to make it work harder. Any ideas? Lots of cash earning very little interest is not a great business. Also - how much sales people are compensated is a bit opaque. If they return cash to shareholders, that's also not great news. It tells me that they have nowhere to get the cash to work and produce higher ROCE. Looks toppy on the big scale. Notice the size of the drop on bad news. All imo of course. Great company nonetheless in its existing businesses, and will keep a watch.

Good results today, but the outlooks appears negative, and when compared to so many other companies - this is starting to look expensive.

As far as I can see, over the last decade Clarkson has never cut its dividend. It has been able to maintain its operating margins despite an ongoing squeeze in the industry. It is stunningly cash generative... 2010 it generated free cashflow per share of 217p. With the share price at £11.90, it currently holds substantial net cash per share. The global outlook is one of great uncertainty...sure. And shippers like Clarkson will always be discounted whenever the macro uncertainty is high...as it is now. Yet, with so much cash just sitting in the balance sheet, I do wonder how big the downside can be. And, if the macro bears are wrong, and all the QE starts to get some traction, stocks like Clarkson will be major beneficiaries. What am I missing here?
