E Daily Stock Pick: The Andersons

A portfolio of stocks I've been building since September 3, 2019, named Volio, will eventually hold 52 dividend dogs. Volio is the fifth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Five portfolios = V for Volio!

Today Im reviewing the first of five consumer defensive sector stocks primed to join Volio as the fifth of five representing the sector.One of the stocks I discuss this week could be the forty-ninth overall selection for Volio!

My subject today is a small cap food distribution company named, The Andersons Inc. Its trading ticker is (ANDE). This is my first report on The Andersons Inc for this Volio portfolio.

Andersons Inc is a diversified agriculture company that conducts business in North America. The company's operations are segmented into grain, ethanol, plant nutrient, and rail.

The grain group operates grain elevators and generates income through buying and selling grains and space leasing. The grain division contributes over half of the company's revenue.

The ethanol division purchases and sells ethanol, offers facility operations, and invests in ethanol plants.

The plant nutrient group manufactures, distributes, and retails agricultural and related plant nutrients.

The company's rail segment leases, repairs, and sells railway facilities.

The Andersons, Inc. was founded in 1947 and is based in Maumee, Ohio.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like The Andersons Inc (ANDE):

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

Andersons' most recent declared quarterly dividend was $0.175, was paid July 22nd. That equates to $0.70annually and yields 4.82% at yesterday's $14.22 share price.
