I do not own this stock of CCL Industries Inc (TSX-CCL.B, OTC-CCDBF). In 2009 I read a favorable report on this stock of which I had also heard before. This is also a dividend paying stock and in 2009 it was on Dividend Achievers list.
When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed that analysts expect declining Revenue and EPS for 2020. However, things are expected to pick up again in 2021. They also expect high dividend increases than for 2020, but not as high as in the past. The dividend growth in 2020 was 5.9% and dividend growth for 2021 and 2022 is expected to be 12.5% and 13.4%, respectively. The 5 year dividend growth has been at 25.32% per year over the past 5 years.
The dividend yields are low with dividend growth good. The current dividend yield is low (under 2%) at 1.38%. The 5 and 10 year median dividend yields are also low at 0.89% and 1.12%. The historical median dividend yield is moderate (2% to 4% ranges) at 2.08%. The dividend yields were in the 1% to 2% ranges mostly until 2013 when some started to drop below 1%. The dividend growth is currently good (14% and above) with the growth at 25.32% per year over the past 5 years. However, the most recent increase in 2020 was for just 5.9%.

The current ratio is 8% above the 10 year median ratio. This stock price testing suggests that the stock price is relatively reasonable but above the median.
Results of stock price testing is that the stock price might be reasonable. The testing is giving mixed signals. I like the Dividend Yield test and the P/S Ratio test, but they are showing stock price above and below the median. The P/B Ratio test says that the stock price is reasonable and below the median.
Is it a good company at a reasonable price? The stock price seems to be in the reasonable range at this point. This is a dividend growth stock which is what I like. The dividend yield is low, so this might be good for someone building their portfolio.
When I look at analysts’ recommendations, I find Strong Buy (2), Buy (7) and Hold (1). The consensus would be a Buy. The 12 month stock price consensus is $57.89. This implies a total return of 12.32%, with 10.94% from capital gains and 1.38% from dividends.
