DryShips (DRYS) Stock: Taking A Dive On Institutional Investor Sale

DryShips Inc. (NASDAQ: DRYS)

DryShips is having an overwhelmingly rough morning in the market this morning, and for good reason. Early this morning, it was announced that a key institutional investor has made the decision to buy a massive portion of their stake in the company. As a result, investor fears set in, leading to massive declines and prompting our partners at Trade Ideas to alert us to the movement. At the moment (9:18), DRYS is trading at $1.20 per share after a loss of $0.45 per share (27.27%) thus far today.

DRYS Falls On Kalani Sale

As mentioned above, DryShips is having an overwhelmingly rough start to the day today after a key institutional investor announced the purchase of a massive amount of shares. The investor, once looked at as the savior that loved DRYS, Kalani Investments is buying another $226 million of the company’s shares. So, what’s the problem? This is the same firm that has purchased shares in the past at a discount, only to offload them and cause the stock to fall. Of course, this is a big hit to the stock and will likely lead to changing opinions among many of the company’s investors.
