E Daily Stock Analysis: Northwest Bancshares

NWBI Returns

Adding the $0.80 annual Northwest Bancshares Inc forward-looking dividend to my $0.78 price upside estimate shows a $1.58 potential gross gain, per share, to be reduced by any costs to trade the shares.  

If we put little under $1,000.00 today in Northwest Bancshares Inc at $14.22 per share, we'd buy 70 shares.

A $10 broker fee (if charged) would be paid half at purchase and half at sale and might cost us about $0.14 per share.

Subtract that maybe $0.14 brokerage cost from my estimated $1.58 gross gain per share results in a net gain of $1.44 X70 shares = $100.80 for a 10.1% net gain on a $995.40 investment.

Thus, Northwest Bancshares Inc shows a possible 10.1% net gain including a 5.63% forward-looking dividend yield. 

Over the next year at this time, a $1000 investment in NWBI could generate $56.30 in cash dividends. And a single share bought at yesterday's closing price was $14.22! So, if NWBI is your kind of regional bank investment, NWBI is showing a share price four times less than the expected annual dividend income from $1,000 invested. This suggests now may be a good time to add Northwest Bancshares Inc to your holdings.     

All of the estimates above are speculation based on the past history of Northwest Bancshares Inc. Only time and money invested in this stock will determine its worth.
