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 tenth stock in this particular series is a slow burner in the portfolio and one that I have held for 3 years, Briscoe Group Ltd [BGR.NZX]
The current holding of 3000 was kicked off by an initial purchase in June 2008.
The stock cost a total of $2970.00. It has returned net dividends of $615.00 and total tax credits of $233.92, with $30.00 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 from dividends and tax credits over the total holding period of 3 years is $818.92
The current capital value of the company in the Share Investor Portfolio as at 27 May 2011 is $4440.00 The capital gain therefore is $1500.00. This gives a total return on this share of $2318.92 when dividends and tax credits are included. This is a 79.85% return over 3 years or a 26.61% gain per annum.
I hold BGR therefore at a total cost of $621.08 or 20c per share.
