Over the last several months Transcontinental has popped up on my radar as I have seen other dividend investors purchase the stock. The company has been performing nicely in my opinion in terms of financials and executing their business plan. The stock is trading much closer to its 52-week low ($14.05) than its 52-week high ($32.36). The P/E ratio currently is 9.31 which is cheap.
The company has been increasing its dividend for the last 17 years. The payout ratio currently stands at 55.92% according to Yahoo Finance which provides the company to continue to raise the dividend if they choose. The dividend is paid quarterly at $0.22 per share.
I bought 110 shares @$14.75. This purchase will boost my income by $96.80 annually.
So what do you think of my purchase? Do you own the stock?
