The portfolio of stocks I started building on September 8, at a one stock per week pace for the next year, is named Vista. I will select its twentieth stock this weekend. Vista is the sixth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Six portfolios = VI for Vista!

Vista is planned to Look Ahead for Outstanding, Proven, Dividend Winners. (Like Aristocrats)

Today we look at a large-cap other industrial metals and mining company named Vale SA. Its trading ticker symbol is VALE. This is my first report on Vale SA for Vista or any of my previous Portfolios.

Vale is the world’s largest iron ore miner and one of the largest diversified miners, along with BHP and Rio Tinto. 

Earnings are dominated by the bulk materials division, primarily iron ore and iron ore pellets, with minor contributions from iron ore proxies, including manganese and coal. 

The base metals division is much smaller, primarily consisting of nickel mines and smelters with a small contribution from copper.

The company was formerly known as Companhia Vale do Rio Doce and changed its name to Vale S.A. in May 2009.

Vale S.A. was founded in 1942 and is headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like Vale SA:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

VALE Price

Vale's price per share closed at $17.46 yesterday. A year ago its price was $13.30. Price increased $4.16 or about 31% last year.

If Vale's stock trades in the range of $7 to $27 this next year, its recent $17.46 price might rise by $2.54 to reach $20.00 by January 22, 2022. 

VALE Dividends

Vale's most recently declared Annual dividend was $0.4268

paid October 7th, 2020. Dividends are estimated to total $0.43 per share annually and yield 2.44% at yesterday's $17.46 closing price.

This may be yet another profitable portfolio when it is completed.
