E Daily Stock Pick: Schweitzer-Mauduit (SWM)

This week, I'm looking for the fourth materials sector representative of nine for my Ivy portfolio.

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; gold; paper; silver; specialty chemicals; steel.

Today I'm reviewing a small-cap paper and paper products company, named Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is SWM. I last reported on SWM on July 23, 2018.

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

Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity-like Schweitzer-Mauduit International 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 first three primary keys, however, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.

SWM Price

SWM's price per share closed at $38.14 yesterday. A year ago its price was $39.42. Price fell $1.28 or 4.35% in the past year.

Assuming SWM's stock trades in the range of $24 to $42 this year, SWM's recent $38.14 price could rise by $0.86 and go to $39.00 by mid-March, 2020.
