E Daily Stock Pick: Huntsman

That $0.1625 Q payout equates to an annual dividend of $0.65 which produces a yield of 3.14% based on yesterday's $20.73 closing price.

Gains For HUN?

Adding the $0.65 annual estimated dividend to my $3.27 estimate of Huntsman's price upside shows a $3.92 potential gross annual gain, per share, which will be reduced by costs to trade those shares.

Say we pay a little under $1,000.00 today at the $20.73 recent stock price, we'd buy 48 Huntsman Corporation shares.

A $10 broker fee paid half at purchase and half at sale will cost us $0.21 per share.

Subtract that $0.21 brokerage cost from the estimated $3.92 gross annual gain leaves a net gain of 3.71 X 48 shares = $178.08 or a 17.85% net gain on a $995.04 investment.

Therefore, Huntsman Corporation whose trading ticker symbol is HUN now shows a possible net gain of 17.85% including a 3.14% dividend yield.

Fourteen brokers track Huntsman Corporation stock:

Six say "Buy" HUN.

Four say HUN will "Outperform" its peers.

Three say "Hold" your HUN Shares.

One says HUN will "Underperform" its peers.

Their consensus score of 1.92 equates to "outperform."

Now we can look at Huntsman Corporation and see it has made money, is making money, and could net an 18.85% gain including a 3.14% dividend yield. It could be more, it could be less.

The above speculation is based on past year performance. The actual results remain to be seen to learn if  Huntsman Corporation is worth your time and money.
