Graphic Packaging Could Unfold A 14% Upside

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 the portfolio I'm building (my Safari To Sweet Success portfolio) seeks a high-yield and growing stock in the consumer cyclical sector. 

The consumer cyclical sector includes twenty-eight industries ranging from Advertising Agencies to Apparel, Autos, Broadcasting, Department Stores, Footwear, Gambling, Leisure, Lodging, Packaging, Personal Services, Restaurants, Rubber, Plastics, & Textiles, and all such consumer aimed enterprises.

Today I'm reviewing a Mid-Cap International packaging and containers corporation. The company's name is Graphic Packaging Holding Company. It's trading ticker symbol is GPK.  


The company provides paper-based packaging solutions to food, beverage and other consumer products companies. It is a producer of folding cartons in Europe, Americas and Asia Pacific. The company operates through three segments: Paperboard Mills, Americas Paperboard Packaging, and Europe Paperboard Packaging. 

The company markets its products primarily through sales offices and broker arrangements with third parties in the Americas, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.  Graphic Packaging Holding Company was founded in 1992 and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

I use three key data points gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like Graphic Packaging Holding Company (GPK): 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

After those three, four more keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest. 

No matter what, it's the first three primary traits that best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

GPK Price

Graphic Packaging's price was $15.04 per share at yesterday's market close. A year ago its price was $13.07 for a gain of $1.97 per share in the past year.  Assuming Graphic Packaging's price will continue to trade in the range of $12.00 to $18.00 next year, its price could grow another $1.97 from $15.04 to $17.01 by late- May, 2019.
