The stock does offer a dividend yield of 1.28% which comes out to 88 cents a share. Over the last three years Charles Schwab has grown its earnings per share by 4.7% a year. This is good for shareholders of the company.
One thing that has helped Charles Schwab with their growth is the acquisition of TD Ameritrade in 2020. Acquiring TD Ameritrade gave the company around 12 million client accounts, $1.3 trillion in client assets, and around 5 billion dollars in annual revenues. This allowed Charles Schwab to scale beyond its organic growth.
Because the stock is already trading at 22.62 times earnings, we currently give the stock a rating of HOLD.
