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 eleventh 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'll review the fifth of five communication services sector stock candidates vying to be that eleventh selection and first of six communication services members of the Vista portfolio.

My subject today is a small-cap publishing company, named John Wiley & Sons Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is JW-A. This is my first report on John Wiley & Sons Inc for Vista or any of my five previous portfolios.

John Wiley & Sons is one of the foremost global providers of academic journals, books, pre-and post-hire assessments and training, test preparation materials, and online education program management solutions. 

Wiley derived nearly 80% of its total fiscal 2020 revenue from digital products and tech-enabled services, with just over half of the total top line coming from its research publishing and platforms segment, 36% from its academic and professional learning effort, and 13% from its education services unit. 

Of fiscal 2020 revenue, 52% was derived in the United States, 10% in the United Kingdom, and 6% in Germany, with no other country accounting for more than 5% of sales.

The company was founded in 1807 and is headquartered in Hoboken, New Jersey.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like John Wiley & Sons Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

JW-A Price

Wiley's price per share closed at $34.33 yesterday. A year ago its price was $46.37. Price fell $12.04 or about 26% last year.
