Toro Co (NYSE:TTC) is an American company that designs, manufactures, and markets a range of outdoor maintenance equipment. TTC’s global presence extends to more than 125 countries through a portfolio of brands that includes Toro, Ditch Witch, Exmark, and more. This afternoon, TTC is trading down 1.6% at $110.

Last month, on May 18, Toro Co declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.2625 per share, which translates to a forward dividend of $1.05 and a dividend yield of 0.94%. The dividend will be payable on July 14 to shareholders of record on June 22, 2021.

Toro stock has increased about 57% year-over-year, and is up 78% since reaching its four-year low of $63.07. Additionally, shares of TTC stock have grown 20% year-to-date, but are down about 5% from their record high of $118.13.

Toro is scheduled to release its second-quarter earnings before the open tomorrow, June 3. TTC has outperformed earnings expectations on three of its latest four earnings reports. For the second quarter of 2020, Toro Co missed analyst estimates by a margin of $0.02 and reported an earnings per share (EPS) of $0.92. For the third quarter, Toro's EPS decreased to $0.82, but it still beat expectations by a margin of $0.27. For the fourth quarter of 2020, the equity posted a decrease in earnings, dropping to $0.64 per share and still beating estimates by a margin of $0.12. For the first quarter of 2021, Toro reported an EPS of $0.85 and beat expectations by a margin of $0.10.

From a fundamental point of view, TTC offers solid and consistent revenue and net income growth. It is very unlikely for the stock to double or triple within a year. However, what you do get, is a company with a strong business model and a long history of growth, which makes for a secure investment despite the stock’s undoubtedly high price-earnings ratio of 32.94. Toro Co stock is likely best suited for long-term investors looking for minimal risk.
