Canadian investors continue to seek a solid growth stock in the TSX today, especially after a year full of losses. But alongside growth, investors want strong dividends. And yet no one mentions West Fraser Woods (TSX:WFG)(NYSE:WFG), which currently owns both.

Today we’re going to take a look at West Fraser stocks and see why it’s not only a solid company to own now, but the perfect game during the current market downturn.

An industry staple

Shares of West Fraser stocks have been falling year-to-date. But the fall was much less dramatic than for many other companies. Stocks are down 14% year-to-date, with stocks falling last week before starting to rebound again. Over the weekend alone, stocks recovered 6% as the market rebounded. And that could come from his necessary stock position.

West Fraser’s stock is in the lumber industry, and it’s a solid industry to be in during tough economic times. Wood is used for everything from paper to buildings, making it a necessary commodity that the world simply cannot live without.

And we’ve certainly seen it during the company’s earnings reports.

Latest earnings growth

The West Fraser stock has seen massive growth lately, even in bad weather, not to mention poor market conditions. The growth stock saw its net profit jump 64% from the same period in 2021 to $1.09 billion. This happened despite transportation issues, factory challenges and supply chain demands.

The company’s revenue increased 33% to $3.11 billion in the first quarter of 2022. It was expected to generate $2.93 billion in revenue, beating estimates. What’s exciting is that, despite the weather challenges, it has managed to create strong demand, and that should continue down the line.

The biggest long-term problem would be rising interest rates for growth stocks. This could lead to a drop in residential construction and wood building products. Although there is a risk, it should also be noted that many construction companies are late in building projects, so investors should not worry too much.

Dividend jump

Meanwhile, West Fraser stock just increased its dividend by 20% in the latest earnings report. It now offers a dividend yield of 1.59% for investors. That works out to $1.53 per share on an annual basis. Plus, you can collect the dividend while the company is still offering incredible value.

Currently, shares of West Fraser are trading at just 2.52 times earnings. It trades at a price-to-book ratio of just 0.82, and its leverage ratio sits at 0.07! Thus, it has more than enough equity to cover its debts, providing investors with strong value should they buy the stock today.

Finally, you could see stocks soar 54% next year, if analysts are right in their consensus price target. So if investors were to invest $5,000 in West Fraser stock, they would receive a dividend of $77.27, along with a potential return of $2,778 in stock growth.

EC Healthcare (HKG:2138) cuts its dividend to $0.042 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/ec-healthcare-hkg2138-cuts-its-dividend-to-0-042/ Sun, 26 Jun 2022 02:41:48 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/ec-healthcare-hkg2138-cuts-its-dividend-to-0-042/

EC Healthcare (HKG: 2138) dividend is reduced to HK$0.042 on September 20. This payout brings the dividend yield to 1.8%, providing only a modest boost to overall returns.

Check out our latest analysis for EC Healthcare

EC Healthcare payment provides strong revenue coverage

Even a low dividend yield can be attractive if it persists for years. Prior to this announcement, EC Healthcare’s dividend was a fairly large proportion of earnings, but only 27% of free cash flow. This leaves a lot of money to reinvest in the business.

Over the next year, EPS is expected to increase by 134.6%. Assuming the dividend continues on recent trends, we think the payout rate could be 45%, which would be comfortable enough to drive the dividend forward.

SEHK: 2138 Historic dividend June 26, 2022

EC Healthcare’s dividend lacks consistency

It’s heartening to see that EC Healthcare has been paying a dividend for a number of years now, but it’s been cut at least once during that time. This suggests that the dividend may not be the most reliable. Since 2016, the first annual payment was HK$0.019, compared to HK$0.14 for the last annual payment. This implies that the company has increased its distributions at an annual rate of approximately 40% over this period. EC Healthcare has increased its distributions at a rapid pace despite cutting the dividend at least once in the past. Companies that have cut once often cut again, so we would be cautious about buying these stocks just for the dividend income.

Dividend growth prospects are limited

Since the dividend has been reduced in the past, we need to check if earnings are increasing and if this could lead to higher dividends in the future. Over the past five years, EC Healthcare’s earnings per share have declined approximately 4.2% per year. Lower earnings will inevitably lead the company to pay a lower dividend based on lower earnings. Earnings are expected to rise over the next 12 months and if that happens we might still be a bit cautious until it becomes a trend.

Our thoughts on the EC Healthcare dividend

Overall, the dividend seems to have been a bit high, which is why it has now been reduced. In the past, payouts have been volatile, but in the short term the dividend could be reliable, with the company generating enough cash to cover it. We would probably look elsewhere for an income investment.

Companies with a stable dividend policy are likely to enjoy greater investor interest than those that suffer from a more inconsistent approach. Yet investors must consider a host of other factors, aside from dividend payments, when analyzing a company. For example, we identified 1 warning sign for EC Healthcare which you should be aware of before investing. EC Healthcare not quite the opportunity you were looking for?

Canacol Energy (TSE:CNE) dividend will be C$0.052 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/canacol-energy-tsecne-dividend-will-be-c0-052/ Fri, 24 Jun 2022 10:18:31 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/canacol-energy-tsecne-dividend-will-be-c0-052/

Canacol Energy Ltd (TSE: CNE) will pay a dividend of C$0.052 on July 15. Based on this payout, the dividend yield on the company’s stock will be 8.1%, which is an attractive increase in shareholder returns.

See our latest analysis for Canacol Energy

Canacol Energy payment provides strong profit coverage

Impressive dividend yields are good, but that doesn’t matter much if payouts can’t be sustained. Based on the latest dividend, Canacol Energy earns enough to cover the payout, but that’s 104% of cash flow. This indicates that the company is more focused on returning cash flow to shareholders, but it could mean the dividend is exposed to cuts in the future.

Looking ahead, earnings per share are expected to increase 59.3% over the next year. Assuming the dividend continues on recent trends, we think the payout ratio could be 52% by next year, which is in a fairly sustainable range.

TSX:CNE Historic dividend June 24, 2022

Canacol Energy continues to build its balance sheet

In retrospect, the dividend is stable, but the company has not paid a dividend for a very long time, so we cannot be sure that the dividend will remain stable in all economic environments. As of 2019, the first annual payment was $0.14, compared to the last annual payment of $0.16. This implies that the company has increased its distributions at an annual rate of approximately 3.6% over this period. Canacol Energy hasn’t been paying a dividend for a very long time, so we wouldn’t be excited about its record growth just yet.

The dividend should increase

Some investors will be eager to buy some of the company’s stock based on its dividend history. Canacol Energy has seen EPS increase over the past five years, at 23% per year. Canacol Energy clearly has the ability to grow rapidly while continuing to return cash to shareholders, positioning it to become a major dividend payer in the future.

Our thoughts on the Canacol Energy dividend

Overall, it’s good to see a consistent dividend payout, but we believe that over the longer term, the current level of payout may be unsustainable. With no cash flow, it’s hard to see how the company can sustain a dividend payment. Overall, we don’t think this company has the makings of a good income stock.

Investors generally tend to favor companies with a consistent and stable dividend policy as opposed to those with an irregular one. At the same time, there are other factors that our readers should be aware of before investing capital in a stock. For example, we encountered 3 warning signs for Canacol Energy you should know, and one of them makes us a little uneasy. If you are a dividend investor, you can also consult our curated list of high yielding dividend stocks.

Here’s what we like about Brüder Mannesmann’s upcoming dividend (ENG:BMM) https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/heres-what-we-like-about-bruder-mannesmanns-upcoming-dividend-engbmm/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 07:26:17 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/heres-what-we-like-about-bruder-mannesmanns-upcoming-dividend-engbmm/

Regular readers will know we love our dividends at Simply Wall St, which is why it’s exciting to see Brüder Mannesmann Aktiengesellschaft (FRA:BMM) is set to trade ex-dividend in the next 4 days. The ex-dividend date occurs one day before the record date which is the day shareholders must be on the books of the company to receive a dividend. The ex-dividend date is an important date to know because any purchase of shares made on or after this date may mean late settlement that does not appear on the record date. As a result, Brüder Mannesmann investors who buy the stock on or after June 27 will not receive the dividend, which will be paid on June 29.

The company’s next dividend payment will be €0.04 per share, after last year when the company paid a total of €0.04 to shareholders. Last year’s total dividend payouts show that Brüder Mannesmann has a rolling yield of 2.4% on the current share price of €1.7. If you’re buying this company for its dividend, you should have some idea of ​​the reliability and sustainability of Brüder Mannesmann’s dividend. That’s why we always have to check if the dividend payouts seem sustainable and if the business is growing.

See our latest analysis for Brüder Mannesmann

If a company pays out more dividends than it has earned, the dividend may become unsustainable – a less than ideal situation. Brüder Mannesmann has a low and conservative payout ratio of just 14% of its after-tax income. Still, cash flow is usually more important than earnings in assessing the sustainability of dividends, so we always need to check whether the company has generated enough cash to pay its dividend.

DB:BMM Historic dividend June 22, 2022

Have earnings and dividends increased?

Companies with strong growth prospects are generally the best dividend payers because it is easier to increase dividends when earnings per share improve. Investors love dividends, so if earnings fall and the dividend is cut, expect a stock to sell heavily at the same time. That’s why it’s heartening to see Brüder Mannesmann’s revenue skyrocketing, up 38% annually over the past five years.

Given that Brüder Mannesmann has only been paying a dividend for a year, there is not much history to rely on.

The essential

Is Brüder Mannesmann an attractive dividend stock, or is it better left on the shelf? We are happy to see that the company improved its earnings per share while paying out a low percentage of income. However, it’s not great to see him pay what we consider an uncomfortably high percentage of his cash flow. All in all, not a bad combination, but we believe there are probably more attractive dividend prospects.

So while Brüder Mannesmann looks good from a dividend perspective, it’s still worth being aware of the risks of this stock. For example, we have identified 3 warning signs for Brüder Mannesmann (2 are a little nasty) you should be aware of.

If you are looking for good dividend payers, we recommend by consulting our selection of the best dividend-paying stocks.

Looking for dividend-paying defense stocks to grab now? Deutsche Bank suggests 2 names to consider https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/looking-for-dividend-paying-defense-stocks-to-grab-now-deutsche-bank-suggests-2-names-to-consider/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 21:58:23 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/looking-for-dividend-paying-defense-stocks-to-grab-now-deutsche-bank-suggests-2-names-to-consider/

Last week, the Fed’s Open Market Committee raised its benchmark interest rate by 0.75%, the biggest such hike in nearly 30 years. This decision marks a shift to an aggressive stance against inflation and an attempt by the Fed to avoid a possible recession.

In fact, preliminary data released by the Atlanta Fed earlier in the week showed that the US is in a technical recession. While official numbers won’t be released until after the end of the second quarter, early numbers show that 2Q22 will end with GDP growth of 0.0%. After the 1.5% contraction in the first quarter, this represents two consecutive quarters of negative or no growth – the definition of a recession.

From an investor’s perspective, such an environment means it’s time to bolster portfolio defenses. Defensive equity games are going to get a lot more attention going forward – as Deutsche Bank noted in a recent Current Conditions report.

Against this backstop, investment banking analysts picked potential winners among dividend-paying stocks, classic defensive plays for downturns of all types. We researched the details of two of these picks, using the TipRanks database. Now let’s dive in and look at the numbers and DB’s commentary together.

Digital Real Estate Trust (DLR)

First, Digital Realty Trust belongs to that long-time champion category of the dividend industry, the real estate investment trust (REIT). These companies are required to return a high percentage of profits directly to shareholders and frequently use dividends as a vehicle. Therefore, REITs can generally be counted on to deliver reliable high-yield dividends.

Some REITs are generalists, investing in any type of property, while others take a narrower view. Digital Realty is one of the latter and focuses on data centers. The company owns data center properties and provides colocation and interconnection solutions between its properties and its tenants’ businesses. With a market capitalization of $36.2 billion and an enterprise value of $56 billion, the company is the 7th largest REIT to trade on Wall Street.

Some recent announcements from the company will help demonstrate the size of its operations. Last month, DLR announced that it had awarded a contract for 158 megawatts of new solar power installations for its operations in California and Georgia. And this month, the company announced the expansion of its international footprint with a commitment to open a new data center project in Israel. This decision will strengthen DLR’s operations in the Eastern Mediterranean region.

Financially, Digital Realty reported revenue of $1.1 billion in 1Q22, in line with the prior quarter and up a modest 3% from the prior year quarter. These revenues supported net income of $76.9 million, which led to common shareholder EPS of 22 cents per diluted share. This figure is down sharply from the diluted EPS of $1.32 recorded in 1Q21. That said, funds from operations (FFO) per share, a key industry metric, rose from $1.50 in 1Q21 to $1.60 in the recent report, a gain of 6.7%.

The FFO backed the company’s $1.22 common stock dividend. This payment is canceled at $4.88 for each common share. At this rate, it is yielding 3.8%, nearly double the average dividend found in broader markets. Even better for investors, the dividend has been increased three times in the past three years, and the company has a 17-year history of maintaining payment reliability with incremental increases.

In his review of Digital Realty for Deutsche Bank, analyst Matthew Niknam sees this company as having a solid foundation to overcome economic difficulties. He writes: “Customer demand has been robust from both hyperscale and enterprise customers, driving strong rental volumes in recent periods. While we don’t believe record volumes can be extrapolated into the future (particularly as macro conditions deteriorate), we believe recent strength and a very healthy backlog (~$400M+ ) help de-risk the growth outlook through 2023.”

Niknam does not stop there. He is also improving his position in the stock from Hold (Neutral) to Buy, and sets a price target, $144, which suggests 13% one-year upside potential for the stock. (To view Niknam’s track record, Click here)

Overall, the moderate buy analyst consensus rating on this stock is derived from 10 recent valuations, including 7 buy versus 3 hold. The shares are currently selling at $127.13 and have an average price target of $159.80, which gives an average upside of around 26% for the year ahead. (See DLR stock forecast on TipRanks)

NetApp (NTAP)

The next dividend-paying stock we’ll be looking at is NetApp, a San Jose-based company working in cloud-based data services and data management. NetApp works with major enterprise customers, including names like AstraZeneca, DreamWorks and even Dow Jones, on a range of data applications, all aimed at getting the right data to the right place at the right time, where the customer can make the most of it. efficient and profitable use of it.

Data has become big business, and even after posting stock losses in recent months (NTAP stock has fallen 31% year-to-date, underperforming the S&P 500), the company is showing still a market cap above $14.5 billion.

Financial results for the last quarter, the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, were strong. NetApp reported net revenue of $1.68 billion, compared to $1.56 billion in 4Q21. The company’s hybrid cloud segment led the way, with $1.56 billion of total revenue. NetApp ended the quarter with $4.13 billion in cash and other liquid assets.

This strong cash is returned to the shareholders of the company. NetApp has an active program of stock buybacks and dividend payments, totaling $361 million in 4Q22 and $1.05 billion for the full year. The common stock dividend is set at 50 cents per share, or $2 annualized, and yields 3%.

All of this led 5-star Deutsche Bank analyst Sidney Ho to want to move these stocks from Hold (i.e. neutral) to Buy. Explaining his position, Ho writes, “We believe NTAP’s year-to-date underperformance of NTAP stock, down -30% (vs -18% for hardware peers), creates an opportunity purchase… We are also encouraged that the company will shift its use of short-term cash from mergers and acquisitions to share buybacks, which should be positive for EPS growth. »

Rating the risk-reward ratio as “compelling,” as well as the upgrade and bullish outlook, Ho’s $84 price target implies 32% year-over-year upside potential. (To see Ho’s track record, Click here)

Overall, the analyst consensus rating on NTAP is a Moderate Buy, based on 13 reviews. These include 6 purchases against 7 catches. The current stock price is $63.73 and its average price target of $88.38 suggests an upside of around 39% over the coming year. (See NTAP stock forecast on TipRanks)

Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) increases its dividend to US$0.56 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/walmart-inc-nysewmt-increases-its-dividend-to-us0-56/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 13:26:47 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/walmart-inc-nysewmt-increases-its-dividend-to-us0-56/

Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) announced that it will increase its dividend on September 6 to $0.56. This makes the dividend yield about the same as the industry average at 1.9%.

Check out our latest analysis for Walmart

Walmart payment has strong revenue coverage

We like to see a healthy dividend yield, but that only helps us if the payout can continue. Based on the latest dividend, Walmart earns enough to cover the payout, but it’s 196% of cash flow. This indicates that the company is more focused on returning cash flow to shareholders, but it could mean the dividend is exposed to cuts in the future.

Looking ahead, earnings per share are expected to grow 30.7% over the next year. If the dividend continues to follow recent trends, we estimate the payout ratio to be 37%, which is within the range that allows us to be comfortable with the sustainability of the dividend.

NYSE: Historic WMT Dividend June 18, 2022

Walmart has a strong track record

Even over a long history of paying dividends, the company’s distributions have been remarkably stable. Since 2012, the first annual payment was $1.59, compared to $2.24 for the last annual payment. This implies that the company has increased its distributions at an annual rate of approximately 3.5% over this period. The slow and steady growth of dividends may not sound that exciting, but dividends have been flat for ten years, which we think makes it a pretty attractive offer.

Walmart may struggle to raise the dividend

Investors in the company will be happy to have received dividend income for a while. Unfortunately, Walmart’s earnings per share have remained essentially flat for the past five years, which means the dividend cannot be increased every year. Walmart is struggling to find viable investments, so it comes back more to shareholders. While not necessarily negative, it is a clear indication that dividend growth may be limited going forward unless earnings begin to pick up again.

Our Thoughts on Walmart’s Dividend

Overall, we still like to see the dividend increase, but we don’t think Walmart will make a great income stock. While Walmart earns enough to cover payments, cash flow is lacking. We don’t think Walmart is a great stock to add to your portfolio if income is your priority.

Market movements testify to the valuation of a consistent dividend policy over a more unpredictable one. At the same time, there are other factors that our readers should be aware of before investing capital in a stock. For example, we chose 5 warning signs for Walmart that investors should be aware of before committing capital to this security. Isn’t Walmart quite the opportunity you’ve been looking for?

The smartest dividend aristocrats to buy with $500 right now https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/the-smartest-dividend-aristocrats-to-buy-with-500-right-now/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 13:35:00 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/the-smartest-dividend-aristocrats-to-buy-with-500-right-now/

VScompanies that regularly increase their dividends have historically outperformed their stingier counterparts, so investors should consider adding dividend-growing stocks to their portfolios. The cream of the crop are the Dividend Aristocrats, companies that have had annual dividend growth for at least 25 consecutive years.

Two of my favorite dividend aristocrats are Real estate income (NYSE:O) and NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE). I recently invested $500 more in these two stocks; here’s why I think they stand out as wise investments.

It’s all in the name

Realty Income has an incredible track record of dividend growth. The real estate investment trust (REIT) has increased its monthly dividend payment 115 times since its IPO in 1994, with the last 98 increases occurring in consecutive quarters. The REIT has increased its dividend for 27 consecutive years, growing it at a compound annual rate of 4.4%. This has helped it produce an average annual compound total return of 15.3% since its IPO.

This steadily growing dividend has enriched long-term investors. For example, someone who invested $100 in real estate income in 1994 would have seen that amount grow to over $4,000 today, when adding together the cumulative dividend payments and stock price appreciation. In the last decade alone, investors would have received nearly 80% of their initial investment in dividends, along with a near doubling of the stock price.

Realty Income should be able to continue to build shareholder value in the future. The REIT is focused on acquiring durable real estate supported by long-term leases with high-quality tenants, in areas resilient to e-commerce disruption and economic downturns. It also has a reasonable dividend payout ratio for a REIT and one of the strongest balance sheets in the industry. This gives it the financial flexibility to continue to acquire income-producing real estate, so it can continue to increase its attractive dividend, which currently yields around 4.5%.

A powerful growth driver

NextEra Energy has also done an exceptional job increasing its dividend and shareholder value over the years. The utility has grown its adjusted earnings per share at a compound annual rate of 8.4% since 2006. Meanwhile, it has increased its dividend at a compound annual rate of 9.8% over that period. Even with this higher dividend growth rate, NextEra has one of the lowest dividend payout ratios in the utilities industry. Moreover, despite a lower payout ratio, NextEra still offers an attractive dividend yield of 2.2%, well above the S&P500 is 1.4% on average these days.

This steady growth in earnings and dividends has created a lot of value for investors over the years. The company has produced a total return of over 800% over the past 15 years. That would have taken an investment from $100 in 2007 to over $800 today.

NextEra Energy expects to continue increasing its earnings and dividend in the coming years. It sees adjusted earnings per share growing at or near the upper end of its target range of 6% to 8% through 2025. Between that and its conservative dividend payout ratio, the utility plans to increase its dividend of around 10% per year until at least 2024. The company’s growth is fueled by its continued investment in building one of the largest renewable energy companies in the world.

Elite Dividend Growth Stocks

Realty Income and NextEra Energy have created enormous wealth for their shareholders over the years by steadily increasing their dividends, allowing a small investment to go a long way. This makes them smart stocks to buy even if you don’t have a lot of money to invest right now.

Here’s why Bank of Montreal (BMO) is a great dividend stock – June 10, 2022 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/heres-why-bank-of-montreal-bmo-is-a-great-dividend-stock-june-10-2022/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 15:01:39 +0000 https://business-continuity-and-disaster-recovery-world.co.uk/heres-why-bank-of-montreal-bmo-is-a-great-dividend-stock-june-10-2022/

Whether through stocks, bonds, ETFs or other types of securities, all investors like to see their portfolios generate big returns. However, when you’re an income-oriented investor, your primary goal is to generate consistent cash flow from each of your liquid investments.

While cash flow can come from interest on bonds or interest from other types of investments, income investors focus on dividends. A dividend is that coveted distribution of a company’s earnings paid out to shareholders, and investors often think of it by its dividend yield, a metric that measures the dividend as a percentage of the current share price. Many academic studies show that dividends are a large part of long-term returns, and in many cases dividend contributions exceed one-third of total returns.

Bank of Montreal in brief

Based in Toronto, the Bank of Montreal (BMO Free Report) is a financials stock that has seen a price change of -1.6% so far this year. The bank currently pays a dividend of $1.06 per share, with a dividend yield of 4.01% compared to the Banks – Foreign sector yield of 3.51% and the S&P 500 of 1.61%.

In terms of dividend growth, the company’s current annualized dividend of $4.25 is up 25.9% from last year. Bank of Montreal has increased its dividend 5 times year over year over the past 5 years for an average annual increase of 5.93%. Going forward, future dividend growth will depend on earnings growth and the payout ratio, which is the proportion of a company’s annual earnings per share that it pays out as a dividend. Bank of Montreal’s current payout ratio is 38%. That means it paid out 38% of its 12-month EPS as a dividend.

This fiscal year, BMO expects solid earnings growth. Zacks’ consensus estimate for 2022 is $10.43 per share, with earnings expected to rise 1.16% from the year-ago period.

Conclusion

Investors love dividends for a variety of reasons, ranging from tax benefits and lower overall portfolio risk to vastly improved earnings from equity investments. It’s important to keep in mind that not all companies provide a quarterly payment.

For example, it is rare for a technology start-up or a large growing company to offer a dividend to its shareholders. It is more common to see larger companies with more established earnings handing out dividends. During periods of rising interest rates, income-oriented investors should be aware that high-yielding stocks tend to struggle. From this perspective, BMO represents an attractive investment opportunity. Not only is it a solid dividend play, but the stock currently sits at a Zacks rank of 3 (Hold).
