ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Greek shipping billionaire George Economou and his investment strategy. Economou owns the majority share of DryShips, which owns 38 dry-bulk carriers that shuttle iron ore, coal, fertilizers and grain around the globe. DryShips charters its vessels in the volatile spot market, and, despite the recent dip, the stock has quadrupled in the past year to $85. Economou, who owns 34% of DryShips, has learned he can do nearly anything he wants in the capital markets as long as it's fully disclosed.
