Diana Containerships DCIX Stock News

Diana Containerships Inc (NASDAQ: DCIX) is having an incredibly strong start to the trading session this morning. As soon as our partners at Trade Ideas alerted us to the gains, we started to do some digging to see why the stock was headed for the top. While we didn’t see any press release, we do believe that we found the reason for the gains. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from DCIX, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From DCIX

As mentioned above, Diana Containerships is having an overwhelmingly strong start to the day today. Of course, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to alert us to the gains. At the moment (9:31), DCIX is trading at $6.85 per share after a gain of $1.98 per share or 40.66% thus far today.




Why The Stock Is Headed Up

As soon as we received the alert, the CNA Finance team started to dig to see exactly why the stock was headed for the top. As mentioned above, we didn’t see any press releases. However, we do believe that we found the reason for the gains.

Digging through SEC filings, we found a filing that was made by Morgan Stanley yesterday. This filing was an SC-13G. This is a filing that is required when someone or some entity purchases more than 5% stake in a company.

So essentially, the gains are the result of news that Morgan Stanley has purchased a large amount of shares. To read the full filing, click here.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will continue to keep a close eye on DCIX. In particular, we’re interested in following the company to see what other financing deals it closes. Ultimately, there’s a dark cloud over bulk dry shippers out of Greece like Diana Containerships due to death spiral financing. This has actually led to several class action suits against DCIX and others in the sector. Nonetheless, we’ll continue to follow the story closely and bring the news to you as it breaks!

McDonalds Corporation MCD Stock News

McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD) isn’t a stock that I would generally talk about. If you follow CNA Finance, you know that we focus more on biotechnology, technology, and value stocks. However, today, I felt the need to take a look at MCD, if nothing more, as a thank you to the company!





A Little Bit Of A Back Story

McDonald’s is a company that we think about when we think about fast food. However, in times of medical need, MCD is the furthest thing that comes to mind. That is, for those that haven’t had the experience I have.

Today, I am writing to you from Gainesville, Florida in one of the most world-renowned hospitals. I never would have thought that MCD would be an important part of this story, but we’ll get to that shortly. Back to the back story…

On Friday, my cousin, Tolar, was having a normal day. That is, until nighttime, when she started to have a severe headache. After a few hours, she called her mom, letting her know that the headache had become nausea. Soon enough, she couldn’t feel her legs. It was time to go to the hospital.




At the hospital in Panama City, they saw what looked to be a brain aneurysm. Unfortunately, the hospital in Panama City, Florida didn’t have the technology or expertise to take care of this kind of condition. So, they quickly flew Tolar to Gainesville, where she would get the care she needed.

While she is still in the midst of a very long recovery, Tolar is doing incredibly well. In fact, yesterday, she woke up on her own for the first time since Friday. Today, they are allowing her to eat, walk around, and visit family before she goes back in for the next surgery on Thursday. Needless to say, we are overwhelmingly happy to see how well she is doing and grateful to the staff at Shands for making this miracle happen.

This Is Where McDonald’s Comes In

Before the complications with Tolar happened, we were on our way to Gainesville anyway. Well, some of us. Asher, our nephew that should be born today, is showing heart complications and needed to be born in Shands as well. When the family found that out, the search for a place to stay began. This is where MCD stepped in in an amazing way.

I never knew what the Ronald McDonald House was. For those of you that don’t know, the Ronald McDonald House is a charity effort that was created by MCD. These houses are for families of pediatric patients in hospitals.

While my brother had a room in the house, we did not. So, we stayed the first two nights in hotels. Nonetheless, on the third night, our brother told us to do the background check and he would see if we could share his room with him.

MCD and the Ronald McDonald House quickly processed the background checks and made accomodations for us. Last night, we stayed at the Ronald McDonald House, and I have to say the experience has been amazing. The staff at these houses are clearly not there for money, they are there for the families of patients dealing with devastating conditions.

It was amazing how friendly and caring the staff at the house was. It’s like a massive house with tens of family members. They gave us dinner last night and breakfast this morning. I even caught one of the workers setting up for a gingerbread house competition that will be going on soon.  These people really do go above and beyond.

If You’re Looking For Something Nice To Do For Christmas, This Is It!

We’ll get into MCD stock soon, and there are some great things to look at. Nonetheless, before we get there, if you’re looking to do something nice for Christmas, my family and I would be incredibly grateful for any of the following:

  • Pray – I’ve never been the most religious person in the world. However, yesterday, I experienced the miracle of prayer. Around 6PM Tolar woke up on her own and showed some incredible signs of recovery. At 6PM yesterday, my mom and her prayer group started to lock hands and pray for my cousin. Within minutes, she was awake. So, yes, I am here shamelessly soliciting prayer. Please pray for Tolar as she is not out of the woods yet. While the bleeding has stopped, there’s still a long road ahead and yet another brain surgery she needs to make it through. Also, please pray for Asher. At the moment, it is expected that when he is born, he will be rushed to the operating room for a heart condition. If you’re willing, please tell your friends, family, and churches these names and include them in your prayers.
  • Donate – The Ronald McDonald House is run largely on donations, whether it be from MCD themselves, corporations, or private citizens like yourself. I can’t tell you what a difference the House has made in our emotional experience here and while I will be making a donation, to help more, they need more. Please consider donating here.
  • Consider MCD Stock – I promised that I would talk about the stock here. Not only would investing in MCD help the company to grow and continue to help families around the world, it could be a strong choice for your own portfolio – the gift that keeps giving! The company has been making headway on their goal of improving service and quality at their restaurants. Not to mention, the new value menu comes in January, which will likely help to improve sales and lead to stronger revenue and profit. Nonetheless, at the very least, please do your due diligence and consider investing in MCD!

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Generally, the CNA Finance team watches the stocks we talk about, and you better believe we’ll be watching MCD. In particular, we’re interested in following the company’s growth and continued improvements in both quality and service. Of course, the team is also closely watching Tolar and waiting for Asher to join the family! We’ll keep you posted on all developments!
