What About Dividends?

When looking at investment returns, it is important to consider the difference between total shareholder return (TSR) and share price return. The TSR is a return calculation that accounts for the value of cash dividends (assuming that any dividend received was reinvested) and the calculated value of any discounted capital raisings and spin-offs. So for companies that pay a generous dividend, the TSR is often a lot higher than the share price return. We note that for Quálitas Controladora. de the TSR over the last 5 years was 518%, which is better than the share price return mentioned above. This is largely a result of its dividend payments!

A Different Perspective

Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity.
