E Daily Stock Analysis: Western Union

A 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 seventeenth 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 I'll review the second of four technology sector stock candidates vying to be that seventeenth selection in Vista.

Today we look at a mid-cap information and financial services company named The Western Union Co. Its trading ticker symbol is WU. This is my second report on Western Union Co for Vista. I last reported on it last September 18 and, in October 2019, selected it for my Volio portfolio.

Western Union provides domestic and international money transfers through its global network of about 500,000 outside agents. It is the largest money transfer company in the world and one of only two companies with a truly global agent network, with MoneyGram being the other.

The Western Union Company was incorporated in 2006 and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like The Western Union Co:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

WU Price

WU's price per share closed at $21.71 yesterday. A year ago its price was $27.37. Price is down $5.66 or about 20.7% on the year.

If The Western Union Co stock trades in the range of $17 to $27 this next year, its recent $21.71 price might rise by $2.39 to reach $24.00 by December 29, 2021. 

WU Dividends

WU's most recently declared Quarterly dividend was $0.225 payable Thursday, December 31st. Dividends are estimated to total $0.90 per share annually and yield 4.15% at yesterday's $21.71 closing price.
