Long Term View: Delegats Group Ltd



In this series of posts I am going to be looking at stocks listed on the NZX in relation to their returns to shareholders over the life of their listing -what shareholders would now see in their back pockets if they had invested in the company IPO.

The calculation of returns includes dividends and tax credits.

Delegats Group Ltd [DGL.NZ] has been good to its shareholders in terms of returns since its NZX listing in 2006 at NZ$1.40 - until its recent big decline in share price. With 20 cents in net dividends (see chart above) paid and another 33% of that figure gained for those eligible for associated tax credits, a slightly less than 50% return (see chart below for the share price percentage gain against the average of all NZX indexes) over the 4 year listing gives an approximate annual net return of just over 12.5%.

This is more than double than the return from the average of all NZX indexes.
