4. If you were making a decision to invest in one of the two companies, which company would you choose (based on the financial  statement analysis you have already performed)? What other factors (not included in the financial statements) are important when considering investment in a company? You should compare the two companies, comment on your results and always justify your answers, taking into consideration the current economic conditions and the shipping industry trends.
