The consumer cyclicals 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 gambling firm. It’s a mid-cap stock with market capital between $2 billion and $10 billion. Its name is William Hill plc. It’s trading ticker symbol is WIMHY. 

William Hill PLC operates licensed betting offices and provides sports betting services. It manages self-service betting terminals integrating retail and online businesses. The Retail segment generates maximum revenue for the company.

The company offers online and telephone sports betting services under the William Hill, Centrebet, Sportingbet, and brands in Australia. It operates approximately 2,375 licensed betting offices in the United Kingdom. 

William Hill PLC was founded in 1934 and is headquartered in London, the United Kingdom.

I use three key data points gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like William Hill plc: 

(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. 


William Hill’s price was $18.70 per share at yesterday’s market close. A year ago its price was $14.66 for a gain of $4.04 per share.  

Assuming William Hill’s price will trade between the range of $16 to $25 next year, its price could grow another $4.04 from $18.70 to $22.70 by April, 2019. 

WIMHY Dividends

William Hill’s most recent variable semi-annual dividend was $0.50 declared in this month of April, and payable on June 22. 

Two past semi-annual payouts peg the annual amount at $1.00 for a yield of 5.3% at yesterday’s $18.70 share price.
