John Wiley & Sons Inc has the ticker symbol JW-A and is a member of the Communication Services sector as a publishing company. This is my third report on John Wiley & Sons Inc for my Vista Portfolio. My most recent past report was on December 16th.

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.

Three key data points 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

John Wiley & Sons Inc's price per share closed at $52.22 yesterday. One year ago its price was $36.03. Price per share has increased nearly 45% from the midst of the Covid market slump. 

Should John Wiley & Sons Inc stock trade in the range of $32 to $56 this year, its recent $52.22 price might rise by $2.10 to reach $54.32 by March 24, 2022. My estimate is in line with that of three analysts tracking JW-A.

JW-A Dividends

John Wiley & Sons Inc's most recently declared quarterly dividend was $0.3425 paid on January 13th. Dividends are estimated to total $1.37 per share annually and yield 2.62% at yesterday's $52.22 closing price. JW-A has paid annually increasing dividends for twenty-seven years.
