Every New York stock exchange trading day I’m posting a daily dividend stock or fund review. I’ll share the three chief qualities of just one equity or fund that could be selected for a dividend stock portfolio I’ve named the Safari to Sweet Success.
This week my latest portfolio seeks a high-yield and growing stock in the technology sector. That sector includes nineteen industries ranging from communication equipment, computers, consumer electronics, and contract manufacturing, to health and information technology and services to internet, scientific instruments, software, solar and all such technological enterprises.
Today I’m reviewing a consumer electronics firm. It’s a mid-cap stock with market capital of between $2 billion and $10 billion. Its name is AB Electrolux (publ)Its trading ticker symbol is ELUXF.
Electrolux AB (publ) is a Sweden-based company which offers well-designed and sustainable products for households and businesses. Its products include refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, air conditioners and small domestic appliances.
It provides its products under the Electrolux, AEG, Zanussi, Frigidaire, Anova, and Westinghouse brands.
The company sells its products to retailers, buying groups, independent stores, and professional users.
AB Electrolux (publ) was founded in 1901 and is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.
I use three key data points gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like AB Electrolux (ELUXF):
AB Electrolux’s price was $30.35 per share at yesterday’s market close.A year ago its price was $28.50 for a gain of $1.85 per share in the past year.
Assuming AB Electrolux’s price will trade between the range of $26.00 to $36.00 next year, its price could grow another $1.85 from $30.35 to $32.20 by April, 2019.
AB Electrolux’s most recent variable semi-annual dividend was $0.47 declared February 2017 and paid in October last year.Total annual dividend paid in 2017 was $0.89.No dividend has yet been declared for 2018. However, a repeat of the $0.89 amount for 2018 would yield 2.9% ar yesterdays stock price.
