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 nineteenth stock this 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 look at a large-cap paper and packaging company named International Paper Co. Its trading ticker symbol is IP. This is my second report on International Paper for Vista. It was also reviewed but not selected for my Volio folio No 5.

International Paper manufactures packaging products and printing papers. It accounts for roughly one-third of the North American corrugated packaging market and about 25% of the uncoated free sheet paper market. 

Though it has operations in Brazil, Russia, India, and China, more than three-fourths of its sales come from North America.

The company sells its products directly to end-users and converters, as well as through agents, resellers, and paper distributors. 

International Paper Company was founded in 1898 and is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like International Paper Co:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

IP Price

International's price per share closed at $50.41 yesterday. A year ago its price was $44.54. Price increased $5.87 or a little over 13% last year.

If International's stock trades in the range of $25 to $55 this next year, its recent $50.41 price might rise by $1.59 to reach $52.00 by January 20, 2022. 

IP Dividends

International's most recently declared quarterly dividend was $0.5125 payable on March 15th. Dividends are estimated to total $2.05 per share annually and yield 4.07% at yesterday's $50.41 closing price.
