E Daily Stock Pick: HeidelbergCement AG (HDELY)

A portfolio of stocks I'm building, named Ivy, holds 52 dividend dogs. Ivy is the fourth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per week pace) since 2014. Four portfolios = IV!

Today I'm reviewing the third of five materials sector stocks this week striving to become the eighth of nine from that sector to join the Ivy folio.

That materials sector has thirteen industries all related to mining, making, and delivering essential commodities. They are: agricultural inputs; aluminum; building materials; chemicals; coal; copper; industrial metals; steel; paper; silver; specialty chemicals; gold.

Today I'm reviewing a large-cap building materials company named HeidelbergCement AG. Their trading ticker symbol is HDELY. I last reported on Heidelberg March 21, 2019.

HeidelbergCement is one of the world's largest producers of cement, aggregates, and ready-mixed concrete.

The company sold 129 million metric tons of cement, 310 million metric tons of aggregates, 10 million metric tons of asphalt, and 49 million cubic meters of ready-mixed concrete in 2018.

Of its revenue before inter-group eliminations, 26% was generated in Western and Southern Europe, 23% in North America, 17% in Asia-Pacific, 16% in Northern and Eastern Europe-Central Asia, 9% in Africa-Eastern Mediterranean Basin, and 9% by group services.

HeidelbergCement AG was founded in 1873 and is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend-paying equities or funds like HeidelbergCement AG (HDELY):

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

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


Heidelberg's price per share closed at $13.35 yesterday. A year ago its price was $15.90. Price fell$2.55 or 16% in the past year.

Assuming Heidelberg's stock trades in the range of $12.00 to $15.00 this year, Heidelberg's recent $13.35 price could rise by $0.65 and go to $14.00 by August, 2020.
