To paraphrase Benjamin Graham: In the short term the market is a voting machine, but in the long term it is a weighing machine. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and changes in the share price over time, we can get a sense of how investors’ attitudes towards a company have changed over time.

What about dividends?
When looking at investment returns, it is important to consider the difference between total shareholder return (TSR) and share price return. While the share price return reflects only the change in the share price, the TSR includes the value of dividends (assuming they have been reinvested) and the benefit of any capital increase or spin- off updated. So, for companies that pay a generous dividend, the TSR is often much higher than the return on the share price. In the case of Pudumjee Paper Products, it has a TSR of 207% for the past year. This exceeds the return on its share price that we mentioned earlier. The dividends paid by the company thus boosted the total shareholder return.
A different perspective
It is nice to see that the shareholders of Pudumjee Paper Products have received a total shareholder return of 207% over the past year. And that includes the dividend. As the 1-year TSR is better than the 5-year TSR (the latter standing at 20% per year), it seems that the performance of the stock has improved in recent times. At the best of times, this can portend real business momentum, meaning that now may be a good time to dig deep. It is always interesting to follow the evolution of stock prices over the long term.
