E Daily Stock Pick: Schweitzer-Mauduit (SWM)

SWM Dividends

SWM's most recent Quarterly dividend was $0.44 declared February 21st and payable March 22nd.

That $0.44 Q dividend equates to a $1.76 annual payout and a yield of 4.6% at yesterday's $38.14 closing price.

Gains For SWM?

Adding the $1.76 annual estimated dividend to my $0.86 estimate of SWM's price upside shows a $2.62 potential gross annual gain, per share, which will be reduced by costs to trade those shares.

Say we put a little under $1,000.00 today at the $38.14 recent stock price would buy us 26 Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc shares.

A $10 broker fee paid half at purchase and half at sale costs $0.38 per share.

Subtract that $0.38 brokerage cost from the estimated $2.62 gross annual gain leaves a net gain of $2.24 X 26 shares

= $58.24 or 5.85% net gain on a $991.64 investment.

Therefore, Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc whose trading ticker symbol is SWM now shows a possible net gain of 5.85% including a 4.6% dividend yield.

Two brokers cover this stock:

One says 'buy' SWM shares.

One says 'hold' your SWM shares.

So I get a little backing for my conservative upside estimate.

Therefore, you can look at Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc and see it has made money, is making money, and could throw a net gain of 5.85% including a 4.6% 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 determine if Schweitzer-Mauduit International Inc is worth your time and money.
