The problem is that I keep this stock in my own Canadian Trading Accounting. For US investors, some cash has been made by this stock on their behalf over the past 10 years but not over the past 5. For Canadian investor this ongoing company has not made money on their behalf within the last 5 or a decade. However, the loss within the last 10 years is less than 1% per year.
This means that all dividend payment differs, with respect to the current forex rate. However, there have been years when in fact the dividend obligations have been down for Canadian investors. Year 5 and 10. Also, the number of outstanding shares has increased by 2.4% and 5.3% per calendar year within the last 5 and 10 years.
The main increase has to do with shares issued in the amalgamation of Thomson and Reuters. Stocks have increased because of stock DRIP and options. Shares have been decreased because of share buy backs. Growth in EPS is much better than Revenue growth. Growth in Cash Flow per Share is worse. I was incorrect about the Return on Equity in my original survey.

There was a miscalculation in my own spreadsheet. ROE on net gain with this stock is 12.1%. The 5 12 months median ROE is low at 6.9%. The ROE on extensive income is 10.7%, a value 12% lower. It isn’t that big of an improvement, but might point to the quality of the earnings. I’ve reloaded the corrected spreadsheet. The last thing to check out is your debt ratios.
The Liquidity Ratio is quite low at only 0.83. That means that the existing assets cannot cover the existing liabilities. The thing is that you can get international exposure with Canadian shares by buying international companies. This might be a justification to purchase this company. The nagging problem with this, of course, is that it exposes you to money fluctuations also.
This stock has not performed as well as I’d have hoped, but they are tough economic times. I still think that it has a good long-term future. See my spreadsheet at tri.htm.
