I own this stock of Stingray Digital Group Inc (TSX-RAY.A, OTC-NONE). I was following Newfoundland Capital Corp and Stingray Bought them out. Also, I read the blub on CEO, Eric Boyko. The site says he is an entrepreneur with nearly two decades of experience with start-ups. Mr. Boyko has extensive expertise in early stage business innovations.
When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed it has recovered well from the low of March 2020. At this time last year, I had a big loss on this stock. Now the Total Return is 6.54% with 2.57% from capital gains and 3.97% from dividends. This is not great, but I expect to do better in the future.
The dividend yields are moderate with dividend growth stopping. The current dividend yield is moderate (2% to 4%) at 3.86%. The 5 and 6 year median dividend yields are also moderate at 2.82% and 2.52%. Dividends were growing at a good rate (15% and over) prior to 2020. Then increases stopped. An analyst thinks that the dividends will be increased in 2023. The reason for the lower 2024 dividend estimate is fewer analysts giving estimates. This occurs sometimes.
The Dividend Payout Ratios (DPR) are fine. The DPR for EPS for 2021 is 49% an this is fine. The 5 year coverage is 138% and this is too high. However, going forward, DPR for EPS is expected to be 44% in 2022 and 49% in 2023. The DPR for CFPS for 2021 is 19% with 5 year coverage at 25%. The DPR for Free Cash Flow for 2021 is 24% with 5 year coverage at 37%.
Debt Ratios are fine. The Long Term Debt/Market Cap for 2021 is 0.52. This is much better than last year when it was 1.05. The change is the recovery of the stock price. Debt has also gone down by 11%. The Liquidity Ratio for 2021 is 0.75. If you add in cash flow after dividends, it is 1.37. This is still low. The Debt Ratio for 2021 is 1.50. The Leverage and Debt/Equity Ratios for 2021 are 3.00 and 2.00.
The Total Return per year is shown below for years of 5 to 6 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 cheap. The dividend yield tests show this and it is confirmed by the P/S Ratio test. Most other testing is showing this as cheap also.
Is it a good company at a reasonable price? The stock price is reasonable, if not cheap. I am still excited about this stock and expect to do well in the longer term. However, this is a young company and therefore risky.
When I look at analysts’ recommendations, I find Strong Buy (2) and Buy (4). The consensus would be a Strong buy. The 12 months stock price target consensus is $9.33. This implies a total return of 23.78% with 19.92% from capital gains and 3.86% from dividends based on a current price of $7.78.
