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 third stock in this particular series is the capital returns star of the portfolio and one that I have held for 3.5 years, The Warehouse Group Ltd [WHS.NZX].
The current holding of 15000 shares was kicked off by an initial purchase of 3000 in November 2006 and 1 other purchase, the latest in July 2009.
The stock cost a total of $74060.00. It has returned net dividends of $12423.22 and total tax credits of $7000.52, with $222.18 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 $19201.56
The current capital value of the company in the Share Investor Portfolio as at 6 May 2011 is $55800. The capital loss therefore is $18260.00. This gives a total return on this share of $941.56. This is a 1.3% return over 3.5 years or 0.37% net per annum.
I hold WHS therefore at a total cost of $73118.44 or $4.87 per share.
