Long Term View: Tourism Holdings 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.

Tourism Holdings Ltd [THL.NZ] has been an good investment for those who have been shareholders since its listing in June 1986. We will start at an adjusted 50c share price and will use financial data from 2000 to make our comparison. (Figures for 1986-1999 are not easily obtainable so annual and overall returns are likely to be higher)

With 88c in net dividends (excluding the NZX listed period 1986-1999. No data can be easily found for dividends) and 30% more in tax credits (see chart above) plus a 91:90 share split issue in 1993 and a 16:15 in 1999 gives THL a slightly more than 184% return (see chart below for the share price percentage gain against the average of all NZX indexes - does not include dividends and tax credits in its calculation) over the nearly 11 year listing of THL (again, the period between 1986 and 1999 is excluded because no share price or dividend details are available so the return will be higher than stated here for this period), gives an approximate annual net return of just under 17 %.

This is approximately a 1% less return when compared to the average of all NZX indexes.
