DIS Stock – Diös Fastigheter (STO:DIOS) Has Compensated Shareholders With A Respectable 96% Return On Their Investment
By buying an index fund, investors can approximate the average market return. But many of us dare to dream of bigger returns, and build a portfolio ourselves. For example, the Diös Fastigheter AB (publ) (STO:DIOS) share price is up 76% in the last three years, clearly besting the market return of around 56% (not including dividends). However, more recent returns haven’t been as impressive as that, with the stock returning just 57% in the last year , including dividends .

While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.
During three years of share price growth, Diös Fastigheter achieved compound earnings per share growth of 10% per year. This EPS growth is lower than the 21% average annual increase in the share price. This indicates that the market is feeling more optimistic on the stock, after the last few years of progress. It is quite common to see investors become enamoured with a business, after a few years of solid progress.

What About Dividends?
It is important to consider the total shareholder return, as well as the share price return, for any given stock. The TSR incorporates the value of any spin-offs or discounted capital raisings, along with any dividends, based on the assumption that the dividends are reinvested. Arguably, the TSR gives a more comprehensive picture of the return generated by a stock. In the case of Diös Fastigheter, it has a TSR of 96% for the last 3 years. That exceeds its share price return that we previously mentioned. The dividends paid by the company have thusly boosted the total shareholder return.
A Different Perspective
Diös Fastigheter’s TSR for the year was broadly in line with the market average, at 57%. That gain looks pretty satisfying, and it is even better than the five-year TSR of 21% per year. It is possible that management foresight will bring growth well into the future, even if the share price slows down. It’s always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Diös Fastigheter better, we need to consider many other factors.
