I have written about returns for stocks on a general basis in the Long Term View series of posts and the Long VS Short series but in this series, Share Investor's Total Returns, I will be giving my actual returns for stocks in the Share Investor Portfolio for as long as I have held them.
The return calculation will include dividends earned along with qualifying tax credits and of course any capital increase in the share price. It will be a total return over the length of holding of the share expressed in overall dollar figures with an individual value per share of what the stock currently is held at.
The fifth stock in this particular series is a big long term punt in the portfolio and one that I have held for nearly 3.5 years, Michael Hill International Ltd [MHI.NZX]
The current holding of 10000 shares was kicked off by an initial purchase of 1000 (adjusted for a 1:10 share split in November 2007) in November 2007 plus 2000 in June 2008 and in July 2009.
The stock cost a total of $7165.84. It has returned net dividends of $569.72 and total tax credits of $279.32, with $92.00 in brokerage.
I am eligible for the full tax credit so if the gross dividend (net dividend plus tax credits)is added and brokerage taken off my full return over the total holding period of 3.5 years is $757.04
The current capital value of the company in the Share Investor Portfolio as at 13 May 2011 is $9200.00. The capital gain therefore is $1942.16. This gives a total return on this share of $2699.20. This is a 37.5% return over 3.5 years or 10.71% net per annum.
I hold MHI therefore at a total cost of $4558.64 or 45.5c per share.
