Long Term View: Vector 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.

Vector Ltd [VCT.NZX] has been a poor investment for shareholders since its August 2005 listing at $2.38c per share . With 61c in net dividends and 30% more in tax credits gives (see NZX chart above) VCT a 15% return (see chart below for the share price percentage gain against the average of all NZX indexes - does not include dividends, tax credits and the share split in its calculation) and over the nearly 5 year listing of VCT an annual net return of 3%.

This compares to an annual return from the average of all NZX indexes of minus 2%.
