The basic sector has thirteen industries all related to mining, making and delivering essential commodities. They are: agricultural inputs; aluminum; building materials; chemicals; coal; copper; paper; gold; silver; specialty chemicals; steel.

Today I’m reviewing a paper and forest products company. It’s a large-cap stock, UPM-Kymmene Oyj. It’s trading ticker symbol is UPMKY. 

UPM-Kymmene Oyj manufactures paper and forest products. The company produces paper, with an emphasis on the manufacture and sale of printing and writing papers.

Further, it provides plywood and veneer products for construction, vehicle flooring, LNG shipbuilding, and other manufacturing industries. 

The company was founded in 1995 and is headquartered in Helsinki, Finland.

Three key data points measure dividend equities or funds like UPM-Kymmene Oyj: 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

After those three, four more keys will unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

Those first three primary keys, however, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 


UPM-Kymmene’s price at yesterday’s market close was $35.88 per share. A year ago its price was $24.87. That is a gain of $11.01 per share in the past year.  

Assuming UPM-Kymmene’s price gains at the same pace this year, its price would grow from $35.88 to $46.89 by late March 2019.

UPMKY Dividends

UPM-Kymmene’s most recent annual dividend was $1.43 declared in February, and payable April 26, 2018. 

The UPM-Kymmene estimated annual dividend for 2018 is estimated at $1.43 payable in April.

The yield from that $1.43 annual dividend is 3.98% at yesterday’s $35.88 share price. 

Gains For UPMKY?

Adding the $1.43 annual dividend to the $11.01 estimated price gain makes a $12.44 projected gross annual gain, which must cover any cost to trade those shares.  

Say $1,000.00 was invested at yesterday’s $35.88 price. That trade bought 28 shares.
