5 questions to ask before buying a dividend stock

When assessing a stock as a potential addition to my dividend Portfolio, I look at these five areas:

How does TINC Comm. VA fare?

TINC Comm. VA has a trailing twelve-month payout ratio of 30.08%, which means that the dividend is covered by earnings. Going forward, analysts expect TINC’s payout to increase to 83.78% of its earnings, which leads to a dividend yield of around 4.12%. However, EPS is forecasted to fall to €0.75 in the upcoming year. Therefore, although payout is expected to increase, the fall in earnings may not equate to higher dividend income.

Reliablity is an important factor for dividend stocks, particularly for income investors who want a strong track record of payment and a positive outlook for future payout. The reality is that it is too early to consider TINC Comm. VA as a dividend investment. It has only been consistently paying dividends for 2 years, however, standard practice for reliable payers is to look for a 10-year minimum track record.

In terms of its peers, TINC Comm. VA generates a yield of 3.98%, which is high for Capital Markets stocks but still below the market’s top dividend payers.
