E Daily Stock Pick - The Hackett Group

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest or not.

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

HCKT Price

Hackett's price per share closed at $16.36 yesterday. A year ago its price was $19.60. In a year its price fell $3.24 or16.5%.

Assuming Hackett's stock trades in the range of $14 to $22.00 this year, Hackett's recent $16.36 price could rise by $3.64 and get to $20.00 by mid September 2020.

HCKT Dividends

Hackett's latest declared semi-annual dividend was $0.18 paid July 10th.

That $0.18 SA payout added to the previous one equates to $0.36 annually and yields2.2% based on yesterday's $16.36 closing price.

AVX Gains?

Adding the $0.46 annual estimated dividend to my $0.14 estimate of AVX's price upside shows a $0.60 potential gross gain, per share, which will be reduced by costs to trade these shares.

Say we put a little under $1,000.00 today at the $16.36 recent stock price, we'd buy 61 The Hackett Group Inc (HCKT) shares.

A $10 broker fee paid half at purchase and half at sale will cost us $0.16 per share.

Subtract that $0.16 brokerage cost from the estimated $3.64 gross estimated gain leaves a net gain of $3.48 X 61 shares = ($212.28) or a 21.3% net gain on a $997.96 investment.

Therefore, The Hackett Group Inc,whose trading ticker symbol is HCKT now shows a possible net gain of 21.3% including a 2.2% 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 The Hackett Group Inc, (HCKT) is worth your time and money.

Never followed $HCKT before, but it looks good. I'll take a closer look, thanks.
