For Special Papers Schweitzer-Mauduit Smokes

Today I'm reviewing a mid-cap paper company.

Its name is Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is SWM

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 through two segments, Engineered Papers and Advanced Materials & Structures. 

The Engineered Papers segment produces and sells those wrapper and binder products to cigarette and cigar manufacturers; and other non-tobacco paper products. It also offers lightweight papers for printing and writing, flooring laminates, and food service packaging. 

The Advanced Materials & Structures segment manufactures non-woven filtration, infrastructure and construction, transportation, medical, and industrial supplies. 

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 or fund like Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. (SWM): 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, four more keys finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

Bit those first three primary keys, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

SWM Price

Schweitzer's price per share was $42.87 at Friday's market close. A year ago its price was $38.56 for a gain of $4.31 per share.  

Assuming Schweitzer's price will trade in the range of $37 to $49 again next year, its price could grow by that same $4.31 again from its current $42.87 to $47.18 by late July, 2019. 

SWM Dividends

Schweitzer's most recent quarterly dividend was $0.43 paid June 22nd. 

Based on this latest quarterly amount, the annual take of $1.72 yields 4% at Friday's $42.87 share price.
