This week my latest portfolio seeks a high-yield and growing stock in the consumer cyclicals sector. 

That sector includes twenty-eight industries ranging from Advertising Agencies to Apparel, Autos, Broadcasting, Department Stores, Gambling, Leisure, Lodging, Packaging, Personal Services, Shoes, Restaurants, Rubber, Plastics, Textiles, and all such consumer aimed enterprises.

Today I’m reviewing a residential construction firm. It’s a mid-cap stock with market capital between $2 billion and $10 billion. Its name is Taylor Wimpey plc.  It’s trading ticker symbol is TWODY . 

Taylor Wimpey plc is a residential developer. It offers homes from apartments to five bedroom houses. It provides housing in United Kingdom and Spain.

In 2007 George Wimpey and Taylor Woodrow merged to form Taylor Wimpey.The home building and construction heritage of both companies, dates back more than 100 years.

Taylor Wimpey plc is headquartered in Buckinghamshire, UK.

I use three key data points gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like Taylor Wimpey plc (TWODY): 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

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

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


Taylor Wimpey’s price was $27.65 per share at yesterday’s market close.  A year ago its price was $24.22 for a gain of $3.43 per share.  

Assuming Gannett’s price will trade between the range of $22 to $32 next year, its price could grow another $3.43 from $27.65 to $31.08 by April, 2019. 

TWODY Dividends

Taylor Wimpey’s most recent variable semi-annual dividend was $0.30 declared in September, and paid November, 2017. 

Two past semi-annual payouts peg the annual amount at $1.49 for a yield of 5.4% at yesterday’s $27.65 share price.
