It is important to consider total shareholder return and share price return for a particular stock. The stock return reflects only the change in stock price, while the TSR includes the value of the dividend (assuming it has been reinvested) and discounted capital raising or spin-off earnings. Arguably, the TSR is a more comprehensive representation of the returns generated by equities. Coincidentally, Lum Chang Holdings has a TSR of 31% over the past five years, outperforming the aforementioned stock return. And there are no prizes to speculate that dividend payouts account for the difference primarily!
another point of view
We are pleased to report that Lum Chang Holdings shareholders earned a total shareholder return of 7.1% last year. Including dividends, of course. The 1-year TSR is better than his 5-year TSR (5-year TSR at 6% p.a.), so it looks like the stock’s performance is improving these days. Optimists can view the recent improvement in TSR as an indication that the business itself is improving over time. I find it very interesting to look at stock prices over the long term as an indicator of performance.
