Long Term View: Ryman Healthcare 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.

Ryman Healthcare Ltd [RYM.NZ] has been exceptional to its shareholders in terms of returns since its IPO in July at $1.00 and its subsequent listing on 29 July of that year and even better for its owners who founded the company in 1984. 71.9c in net dividends - there are no tax credits - (see chart above) and a 5:1 share split in January 2007 gives RYM a slightly more than 680% return (see chart below for the share price percentage gain against the average of all NZX indexes) over the nearly 11 year listing, an approximate annual net return just over 60%.

This is approximately a 600% better return when compared to the average of all NZX indexes.
