E Daily Stock Pick: American Campus Communities

ACC Dividends

ACC's most recent quarterly dividend was $0.46 declared October 31st and paid November 26th. 

That $0.46 quarterly stipend equals an annual payout of $1.84 yielding 4.3% at yesterday's $42.84 closing price.

Gains For ACC?

Adding the $1.84 annual estimated dividend to my estimated $1.16 annual price upside estimate for American Campus Communities Inc shows a $3.00 potential gross annual gain, per share, which will be reduced by costs to trade those shares.  

Just under $1,000.00 invested today at the $42.84 recent price would buy us 23 ACC shares. 

A $10 broker fee paid half at purchase and half at sale costs $0.435 per share.

Subtract that $0.435 brokerage cost from the estimated $3.00 gross annual gain leaves a net gain of $2.565 X 23 shares 

= $59.00

for about 6% net gain on a $985.32 investment.

Therefore, American Campus Communities Inc. whose trading ticker symbol is ACC, now shows a possible 6% net gain including a 4.3% dividend yield. 

Twelve brokers cover this stock:

Four say "buy' ACC shares.

One expects ACC stock to "Outperform" peers.

Six say "hold" your ACC shares.

One says ACC will "underperform"

Therefore, you can look at American Campus Communities Inc and see it has made money, is making money, and could rise to net a 6% annual gain including that 4.6% estimated dividend yield. It could be more, it could be less.    

The above speculation is based on past year performance. The actual results remain to be seen to determine if American Campus Communities Inc is worth your time and money.
