E Daily Stock Pick: Kennametal

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 fifth of five industrials sector stocks this week striving to become the seventh of eight from that sector to join the Ivy folio.

That industrials sector includes twenty-three industries all related to designing, fabricating and servicing stuff we want and use. The industrials industries range from aerospace and defense to waste management with all the transportation, business services, and equipment required in between.

Today I'm reviewing a mid-cap tools & accessories company named Kennametal Inc. Their trading ticker symbol is KMT. I last reported on Kennametal Inc August 22, 2018.

Kennametal Inc is a manufacturer of metalworking tools and wear-resistant engineered components and coatings.

The company operates two business segments: industrial and infrastructure.

The industrial segment offers technology and customized solutions used in the manufacture of engines, airframes, automobiles, trucks, ships and other types of industrial equipment.

In the infrastructure segment, Kennametal offers products and solutions such as road milling, trenching, surface mining, and underground mining safety used in the oil and gas, power generation and chemicals, underground and surface mining, and highway construction and road maintenance industries.

The largest end market for Kennemetal is the United States.

Kennametal Inc. was founded in 1938 and is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend-paying equities or funds like Kennametal Inc:

(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.
