 ANZGF PriceOver the past year, ANZ Group share price increased near 20% from $15.38 to $18.46 as of Monday’s market close.If ANZ Group shares trade in the range of $8.00 to $22.00 this next year, its recent $18.46 share price might rise to $20.00 by next year. Of course, ANZ Group price could drop about the same $1.54 estimated amount, or more.My annual upside estimate of  $1.54 however, is just under the average share price gain by ANZ Group over the past two years.

 ANZGF ReturnsTo put it all together, add the ANZ Group projected annual dividend of $1.10 to the estimated price upside of $1.54 to get a $2.64 estimated gross gain for the coming year.At Friday’s $18.46 share price, a little under $1000 would buy 54 shares.A $10 broker fee (if charged), paid half at purchase and half at sale, would cost us about $0.185 per share.Subtracting that unlikely $0.185 brokerage cost from the $2.64 estimated gross gain reveals a net gain of $2.455 X 54 shares = $132.57 for about an 12.25% estimated net gain on the year.Furthermore, the $59.30 annual income from $1K invested is over 3.2 times more than the single share price.
