Snatch This Bargain Dividend Stock Even Cheaper Than Chairman and CEO Fettig Did
By Dividend Channel Staff, Thursday, November 17, 4:10 PM ET
There's an old saying on Wall Street about insider buying: there are many possible reasons to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy. Back on November 4, Whirlpool Corp's Chairman and CEO, Jeff M Fettig, invested $256,600.00 into 5,000 shares of WHR, for a cost per share of $51.32. Bargain hunters tend to pay particular attention to insider buys like this one, because presumably the only reason an insider would take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock of their company in the open market, is that they expect to make money.
In trading on Thursday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Whirlpool Corp (NYSE:WHR) and achieve a cost basis 2.6% cheaper than Fettig, with shares changing hands as low as $49.98 per share. It should be noted that Fettig has collected $0.50/share in dividends since the time of their purchase, so they are currently down 1.6% on their purchase from a total return basis. Whirlpool Corp shares are currently trading trading flat on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of WHR shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
The current annualized dividend paid by Whirlpool Corp is $2.00/share, currently paid in quarterly installments, and its most recent dividend ex-date was on 11/16/2011. Below is a long-term dividend history chart for WHR, which can be of good help in judging whether the most recent dividend with approx. 3.9% annualized yield is likely to continue.
Looking at the chart above, WHR's low point in its 52 week range is $47.35 per share, with $92.28 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $50.26. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:
