Fortis by Gordon Pape

The Money Show puts out Top Picks in the Mid-Year for its readers. This one is about Fortis by Gordon Pape. This is a great stock and one that I have had for a very long time.

I have had this stock since 1987. To the end of March 2019, I have made 12.91% total return per year on this stock. Of this return, 7.93% per year is from capital gains and 4.98% is from dividends. For the stock I bought in 1987, I am making a yield of 38.7% on my original purchase.

The Total Return per year is shown below for years of 5 to 37 to the end of 2018. 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.

As you can see this stock is a consistent performer. Investors you have bought this stock 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 37 years ago have made a similar return to what I have.
