I own this stock of Toromont Industries Ltd (TSX-TIH, OTC-TMTNF). This is one of the stocks I bought after selling Loblaws in 2008. This was a stock on Mike Higgs' Canadian Dividend Growth Stock list. I bought more in 2008 after selling Onex and AGF Management.
One of the things I look at, using past data, is dividend yield on original investments after 5 to 30 years. I am also looking at how much of the stock cost is covered by dividends after 5 to 30 years. In the chart below I show the numbers for this stock. For example, if you bought this stock 10 years ago at the median price, you would have a current yield on your original investment of 6.68% and 43% of your original cost would have now been paid by dividends.
When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed I have done very well with this stock. I have had it for some 13 years and I have a total return of 14.62% per year with 12.27% in Capital Gains and 2.35% in dividends. For the stock I bought 13 years ago I am earnings 6.17% on my original investment.
The dividend yields are low with dividend growth moderate. The current dividend yield is low (below 2%) at 1.27%. The 5 year and historical median dividend yields are also low at 1.62% and 1.82%. The 10 year median dividend yield is moderate (2% to 4% ranges) at 2.02%. The dividend growth is moderate (8% to 14% growth) at 12.7% per year for the past 5 years. The most recent dividend increase was in 2020 and it was for 14.8%.
The Dividend Payout Ratios (DPR) are good. The DPR for EPS is 39% with 5 year coverage at 33%. The DPR for CFPS is 24% with 5 year coverage at 21%. The DPR for Free Cash Flow is 32% with 5 year coverage at 30%. Site disagree on FCF.
Debt Ratios are good. The Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio is 0.09. This is very low and good. The Liquidity Ratio for 2020 is 2.36 and the Debt Ratio for 2020 is 2.03. These are also good as anything over 1.50 is good. The Leverage and Debt/Equity Ratios are low and good at 1.97 and 0.97.
The Total Return per year is shown below for years of 5 to 30 to the end of 2020. 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 chart below.

Results of stock price testing is that the stock price is probably expensive. Both the dividend yield tests point to this as does the P/S Ratio test. Most of the other tests say the same thing.
Is it a good company at a reasonable price? I think the current price is too high. However, I own this stock and I have no intention of selling. Stocks go from being over price to under priced all the time. I am a long term investor, so I might do some buying when my stocks are underpriced, but I do not sell because they are overpriced.
When I look at analysts’ recommendations, I find Strong Buy (2), Buy (4) and Hold (3) recommendations. The consensus recommendation is a Buy. The 12 month stock price consensus is $101.22. This implies a total return of 4.97% with 3.70% from capital gains and 1.27% from dividends.
