Gains For SWM?

Adding the $1.72 annual dividend to the $4.31 potential year over year price gain makes a $6.03 projected gross annual per share gain, which will be reduced by costs to trade the shares.  

A little under $1,000.00 invested today at the $42.87 recent price buys 23 shares. 

A $10 broker fee paid half at purchase and half at sale costs about $0.43 per share, subtracting that $0.43 brokerage cost from the estimated $6.03 gross gain leaves a net gain of $5.60 X 23 shares = $128.80 or a 12.8% net gain on a $986.01 investment.

Therefore,Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. (whose ticker symbol is SWM), now shows a possible 12.8% net gain including a 4% dividend yield.
