Teradata Corp. Stores Good Analytic Data

This week my Safari portfolio seeks a company in the communication services sector but by mistake, I found this promising pick in Technology.

The communication services sector has companies that connect us electronically in either of two ways: telecommunications, or pay TV.

Technology, however,  covers nineteen industries on of which is data storage. (Which can be used in communication services).

Today I'm accidentally reviewing the data storage technology company named Teradata Corporation. It's trading ticker symbol is TDC

Teradata Corporation offers analytic data platforms, applications, and services for data warehousing and analytic technologies.

The company has strategic partnerships with Accenture Limited, Capgemini Group, Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation, Deloitte LLP, International Business Machines Corporation, and Wipro Limited. Teradata Corporation was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Dayton, Ohio.

I use three primary keys to gauge dividend equities or funds like Teradata Corporation (TDC): 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

After those three, I'll use four more keys to unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

The first three keys, though, best test whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

TDC Price

Teradata's price at Monday's market close was $41.22 per share. The company has made money for investors. One year ago its price was $29.03. It's  gained  $12.19 per share in the past year.  And at $41.22 is $11.22 over my price limit for my Safari portfolio. 

If Teradata does as well in 2018 its price will increase from $41.22 to $53.41 per share or about 29.5%.

TDC Dividends

Teradata Corporation pays no dividends so its disqualified for my Safari both by too high a price and no dividend.  

Gains For TDC?

My $12.19 estimated year over year price gain, shows that as a potential gross gain for the coming year with no dividend.
