Stronger dividend payouts by dry bulk peers have caused New York-listed Genco Shipping & Trading’s valuation to trail some others in the sector, but a solution is coming.

That was the take from Genco chief executive John Wobensmith in a recent interview with Value Investor’s Edge commentator J Mintzmyer as the Manhattan-based bulker owner prepares to unveil its fourth-quarter earnings.

The big news for Genco will be the size of its own dividend under a new high-payout policy previewed by the owner last April.
