Of course, Flowers’s price could drop about the same $1.60 estimated amount or more.My annual upside estimate of $1.60 however, is $0.33 below the median of one-year price targets from 6 analysts tracking Flowers Foods.FLO DividendFlowers Foods Inc. has paid generally annually increasing Quarterly dividends since December 13, 2002. FLO’s most recent declared Quarterly dividend, of $0.23 will be paid December 15th to shareholders on record as of November 30th.  The forward-looking $0.92 annual dividend yields 4.20% at Wednesday’s $21.90 share price.FLO ReturnsTo put it all together, add the annual dividend of  $0.92 to the price upside of $1.60 to find a $2.52 gross gain.At Wednesday’s $21.90 share price, a little over $1000 would buy 46 shares.A $10 broker fee (if charged), paid half at purchase and half at sale, might cost us about $0.22 per share.Subtracting that likely $0.22 brokerage cost from the $2.52 estimated gross gain per share produces a net gain of $2.30 X 46 shares = $105.80 for a 10.5% estimated net gain.You might choose to pounce on Flowers Foods Inc. FLO is a long-time American Baking company. Furthermore, the estimated $42.00 dividend income from $1k invested is almost 2 times greater than Wednesday’s Flowers Foods Inc $21.90 single share price.The exact track of Flowers Foods Inc’s ongoing future prices and dividends are yet to be known.Remember the true value of any stock is best realized through personal ownership of shares.More By This Author:Current Analysis: Imperial Brands
