$108.05$100.12 -14.21%

A technique commonly used by dividend investors to value dividend-issuing stocks is the Dividend Discount Model (DDM), which seeks to determine a fair share price based on the dividend provided by the company relative to a number of other company-specific factors. In the case of WM, the DDM model, as implemented by StockNews, implies a negative return of 14.21% relative to its current price. To help understand and contextualize the model's evaluation of WM, investors may wish to consider are:

  • In comparison to other US listed dividend yielding stocks in the Industrials sector, Waste Management Inc's expected return of -14.21% is higher than 72.81% of its fellow sector mates.
  • Out of all stocks in our universe of US-listed dividend-issuing stocks, Waste Management Inc bears a discount rate, according to our calculations, lower than 72.81% of them (lower discount rates are generally perceived as positive, and a sign of lower risk).
