E Daily Stock Pick: Schweitzer-Mauduit International

A new portfolio of stocks I started building last Tuesday, named Vista, will select its first 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'll review the fourth of four Basic Materials stock candidates for the very first selection in the Vista portfolio

My subject today is a paper and paper products company named, Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is SWM. This is my first ever report on Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc for my new Vista portfolio. I did look at it several times for my previous Volio Portfolio.

Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. is a diversified producer of premium specialty papers and resin-based products. 

It manufactures and sells paper and reconstituted tobacco products to the tobacco industry as well as specialized paper products. 

The company operates in two segments namely Advanced Materials & Structures, which manufactures resin-based products used in specialty applications in the filtration, infrastructure and construction, transportation, industrial, and medical end-markets, and Engineered Papers, which produces cigarette papers and reconstituted tobacco products for cigarette and cigar manufacturers, as well as various other non-tobacco paper products, such as, alkaline battery separator papers; and commodity paper grades for printing and writing, flooring laminates, and food service packaging. 

It generates a majority of its revenue from the Advanced Materials and Structures segment.

The company was incorporated in 1995 and is headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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