Three key data points gauge dividend equities or funds like Northwest Bancshares Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

NWBI Price

Northwest's price per share closed at $14.22 yesterday. One year ago its price was $10.22. Thus, the price per share has grown over 39% as it recovered from last year's Covid market slump. 

Should Northwest Bancshares Inc stock trade in the range of $10.00 to $16.00 this year, its recent $14.22 price might rise by $0.78 to reach $15.00 by May 5, 2022. My estimate is $0.12 higher than the median of six estimates from analysts tracking NWBI.

NWBI Dividends

Northwest's most recent quarterly dividend of $0.20 is payable May 17th and equates to $0.80 annually yielding 5.63% at yesterday's $14.22 closing price. Northwest has paid annually increasing quarterly dividends for 11 years.
