This weeks Stock of the Week, Restaurant Brands Ltd [RBD.NZ], as I pointed out last week, is a tale of two stocks.
It takes a bit of a leap of faith by current shareholders not to sell and for new shareholders wishing to buy - current fortunes of the company now being at a high and the share price starting to reflect that.
All is not lost though!
This company has rallied from penny dreadful status many times before and has managed to reward shareholders who got in at the early stages and there is probably more upside to come.
From a 52 week low of 58c to the current 52 week high of NZ$1.42 the share price looks likely to rally closer to the 2 dollar mark as it has done before so there is room for a good short term gain if you think the company profit is unsustainable or room for a good long term return if you think the company is on track for more of the same -this would defy company history however.
The dividend has just been raised for the latest results to 4.5 c to give this stock a gross return of slightly over 7.5%, not bad when term investments are getting 4%.
