Grange Resources dividend is well covered by earnings
While return is important, another factor to consider regarding a company’s dividend is whether current payout levels are achievable. However, Grange Resources’ profits easily cover the dividend. This means that most of its profits are kept to grow the business.
Over the next year, EPS could increase by 41.9% if recent trends continue. If the dividend continues on that path, the payout ratio could be 12% by next year, which we believe may be quite sustainable going forward.
The company has a long history of dividends, but it doesn’t look good with the cuts of the past. Payments haven’t really changed in 10 years. The dividend has experienced some fluctuation in the past, so even though the dividend has been increased this year, we must remember that it has been reduced in the past.
The dividend seems likely to increase
With a relatively volatile dividend, it is even more important to assess whether earnings per share are increasing, which could indicate a growing dividend in the future. It is encouraging to see that Grange Resources has increased its earnings per share by 42% per year over the past five years. Rapid earnings growth and a low payout ratio suggest that this company has indeed reinvested in its business. If this continues, this business could have a bright future.
We really like the dividend from Grange Resources
Overall, we think it could be an attractive income stock, and it’s only getting better by paying a higher dividend this year. The company easily earns enough to cover its dividend payments and it’s great to see that those profits translate into cash flow. All of these factors taken into account, we believe this has strong potential as a dividend-paying stock.
