Three key data points gauge dividend equities or funds like Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd. (TAK):

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

TAK Price

Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd's price per share closed at $17.06 yesterday. One year ago its price was $16.05. Price per share has increased about 6.3% from the midst of the COVID market slump. 

Should Takeda's stock trade in the range of $15.00 to $25.00 this year, its recent $17.06 price might rise by $2.94 to reach $20.00 by April 9, 2022. My estimate is however $ 2.89 lower than the median of three estimates from analysts tracking the stock.

TAK Dividends

Takeda's most recently declared a semi-annual dividend paid December 20th was $0.4305, which equates to $0.86 annually and yields 5.05% at yesterday's $17.06 closing price. TAK has paid semi-annual variable dividends for 13 years.

TAK Returns

Adding the $0.86 annual TAK anticipated dividend to my $2.94 price upside estimate shows a $3.80  potential gross gain, per share, to be reduced by any costs to trade the shares.
