Long Term View: ASB Capital Preference Shares (B)

In this series of posts I am going to be looking at stocks listed on the NZX in relation to their returns to shareholders over the life of their listing -what shareholders would now see in their back pockets if they had invested in the company IPO. The calculation of returns includes dividends and tax credits.

ASB Bank Pref shares A [ASBPB.NZX] has been a very poor investment for shareholders since its 2003 listing on the NZX at $NZ1 per share. With 27.66c in net dividends it gives (see NZX chart above) ASBPB a 7.95% return (see chart below for the share price percentage gain against the average of all NZX indexes - does not include dividends, tax credits and the share split in its calculation) and over the nearly 7 year listing of ASBPB an annual net return of 1.13 %.

This compares to a 9.28% annual return from the average of all NZX indexes.

Compare ASBPB Prefs to ASBPA Prefs
