I own this stock of Alaris Royalty Corp (TSX-AD, OTC-ALARF). This is a stock that Dividends in Hand Blogger has bought in July 2016. It was also recommended by Acumen Capital report in a report by Brian Pow and Oliver Shao via Investor’s Digest.
When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed that insiders are buying. Net Insider Buying is at 0.06% which is relatively high. There is also a big increase in outstanding shares over the past 5 and 10 years with increases of 5% and 19% per year over these periods. Therefore, it is per share growth that point to what real growth has been. For example, Revenue up by 13.68% and 18.06% per year over the past 5 years and 10 years, but Revenue per Share is up by 8.34% and 2.77% over these same time periods.
The dividends yield is good with a current dividend yield at 7.83%. The 5 and 9 year median dividend yields are 6.61% and 6.79%. The dividend growth is low with 5 and 9 year growth at 3.82% and 5.64%. There was no increase in 2017 and only a 1.95% increase in 2018
The Dividend Payout Ratios are currently relatively high. The DPR for 2018 for EPS is 98.33% with 5 year coverage at 112.04%. The 5 year coverage is too high. The DPR for CFPS for 2018 is high also at 74% with 5 year coverage also at 74%. I prefer this to be 40% or less. Dividend increases need better EPS and CFPS growth.
Debt Ratios are good. Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio for 2018 is good at 0.37. The Liquidity Ratio is very good at 4.74 for 2018. The Debt Ratio is very good also at 3.49 for 2018. The Leverage and Debt/Equity Ratios are also quite good at 1.40 and 0.40 respectively.
The Total Return per year is shown below for years of 5 to 11 to the end of 2018. Under the Capital Gain column is the portion of the Total Return attributable to capital gains. Under the Dividend column is the portion of the Total Return attributable to dividends. See charts below.
The stock is up this year by 24%, but that does not help the 5 year total return much as the t year total return has a loss of 4.22% per year to date. I have noticed the same thing with other stocks. I must admit I have not done that well with this stock. I have had it for almost 2 years and my total return is 4.52% with a capital loss of 3.25% and dividends of 7.77%. I do expect to do better in the future.

Results of stock price testing seems to be that the stock price is reasonable and below the median. This is showing up in most of the testing except for the P/S Ratio which is show the stock as cheap. It would certainly seem that the stock is at a current good price.
When I look at analysts’ recommendations, I find Buy (5) and Hold (4). The consensus would be a Buy. The 12 month stock price is $22.61. This implies a total return of 15.09% with 7.26% from capital gains and 7.83% from dividends. On this sort of stock, you would expect a large portion of the return to be in dividends.
