E Daily Stock Analysis: HNI Corp.

The portfolio of stocks I started building on September 8, at a one stock per week pace for the next year, is named Vista.I will select its eighth stock this coming weekend. Vista is the sixth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Six portfolios = VI for Vista!

Vista is planned to Look Ahead for Outstanding, Proven, Dividend Winners. (Like Aristocrats)

Today we'll review the third of five industrial sector stock candidates vying to be that eighth selection and second industrial member of the Vista portfolio.

My subject today is a small cap business equipment and supplies company, HNI Corp. Its trading ticker symbol is HNI. This is my first report on HNI Corp for this Vista dog of the week portfolio. I also reported on it for a Volio selection

  • HNI Corp is a provider of office furniture and hearth products. The company generates the bulk of its revenue from its office furniture segment, which consists of products such as panel-based and freestanding furniture systems and complementary products. 
  • These products are sold primarily through a national system of dealers, wholesalers, and office product distributors but also directly to end-user customers and federal, state, and local governments. 
  • The hearth segment consists of products including gas-, wood-, and pellet-burning fireplaces, inserts, stoves, facings, and accessories. 
  • The company has operations in the United States, Canada, mainland China, Hong Kong, India, and Taiwan.

HNI Corporation was incorporated in 1944 and is headquartered in Muscatine, Iowa.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like HNI Corp. (HNI):

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Those three basic keys best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.

Another example of "due diligence" done by the author as part of building up a portfolio.
