July 27, 2013 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: SAN

Greetings my fellow foxies, our featured stock is Banco Santander Central Hispano SA (ADR). Wow that was a lot to type let's just go with (NYSE: SAN). Or we could even go with the more amusing ticker of (STD) if you wanna go all old school.

Picked by  rd80 on 8-21-12 with a price of $6.87, Caps has lowered the start price down to $6.32 for a stock gain of +15.38%. Let's say Russ had plunked down a grand, with the dividends paid and closing price of $7.29 thats $1,172 (all #'s rounded).

Considering all the turmoil of the daily soap opera that is known as the eurozone, that's a pretty decent return. Once again the safety net of a dividend allows you to block out the everyday noise.
