E Daily Stock Analysis: Spark New Zealand (SPKKY)

Spark New Zealand Ltd. is known by the trading ticker symbol SPKKY and is a member of the communication services business sector as a mid cap telecom services enterprise. This is my second report on Spark New Zealand Ltd for this Vista portfolio. I last reported on SPKKY on April 20th

Spark is one of only two large integrated telecommunications companies in New Zealand. It is the dominant provider of fixed-line services in the country and effectively an equal-number-one player in the mobile telephony market. 

It also boasts a commanding presence in the New Zealand corporate and wholesale telecommunications services provision space. Spark's operations are split into retail (home, mobile, and business), Digital (including IT services), Ventures (investments in technology and innovation), and Connect (infrastructure).

Spark New Zealand Limited was founded in 1987 and is based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Three key data points gauge dividend equities or funds like Spark New Zealand Ltd. (SPKKY):

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

SPKKY Price

Spark New Zealand Ltd's price per share was $17.13 as of yesterday's market close. One year ago its price was $15.20. So SPKKY's price has jumped about 12.7% in the past year. 

If Spark's stock trades in the range of $15 to $20 this next year, its recent $17.13 price might rise by $0.87 to reach $18.00 by July 14, 2022. My estimate is $0.04 higher than the annual price upside estimate from the analyst tracking SPKKY for a brokerage. 

SPKKY Dividends

Spark's most recent regular semi-annual dividend payout of nearly $0.44 was paid April 19, 2021, and added to the previous semiannual payment projects an $0.85 annual payout yielding 4.97% based on yesterday's $17.13 closing price. SPKKY has paid variable semi-annually for 29.5 years.
