Have Bank of Queensland shares been a worthwhile long-term investment?
The post If you invested $1,000 in Bank of Queensland (ASX:BOQ) shares a decade ago, here’s what it would be worth now appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –

The Bank of Queensland Limited (ASX: BOQ) share price has pushed higher over the past decade, up around 40%. In comparison, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO), is up around 85% over the same time frame.

During October 2019, Bank of Queensland shares were hovering around today’s levels, before freefalling thereafter. While the regional banks’ shares have somewhat recovered, they are still a long way off 2015’s record high $13 mark.

Nonetheless, we wind the clock back and see how much an investor would have made if they had invested $1,000 in Bank of Queensland shares a decade ago.

How much would your initial investment be worth now?

If you spent $1,000 on Bank of Queensland shares exactly 10 years ago, you would have picked them up for $6.45 apiece. The purchase would deliver approximately 155 shares without reinvesting the dividends.

Looking at Friday’s closing price, the Bank of Queensland share price finished at $9.23. This means those 155 shares would be worth $1,430.65 (155 shares x $9.23).

In percentage terms, the initial investment implies a gain of around 43.07% or a yearly average return of 3.65%. Comparing that to the ASX 200, the benchmark index has given back 6.22% over a 10-year period.

And the dividends?

Over the course of the last decade, the Bank of Queensland has made a total of 19 dividend payments from 2011 to 2021. Its most recent dividend distributions were significantly reduced due to the pandemic severely affecting its operations and bottom line.

Adding those 19 dividends payments gives us an amount of $6.08 per share. Calculating the number of shares owned against the total dividend payment gives us a figure of $942.40 (155 shares x 6.08).

When putting both the initial investment gains and dividend distribution, an investor would have made roughly $2,373.05.
