Dynacor Group Inc.'s (TSE:DNG) investors are due to receive a payment of $0.0083 per share on 19th of December. The dividend yield will be 3.7% based on this payment which is still above the industry average.
Dynacor Group's Dividend Is Well Covered By Earnings
We like to see robust dividend yields, but that doesn't matter if the payment isn't sustainable. However, Dynacor Group's earnings easily cover the dividend. As a result, a large proportion of what it earned was being reinvested back into the business.
Over the next year, EPS could expand by 36.2% if recent trends continue. Assuming the dividend continues along recent trends, we think the payout ratio could be 30% by next year, which is in a pretty sustainable range.
Dynacor Group Doesn't Have A Long Payment History
The dividend hasn't seen any major cuts in the past, but the company has only been paying a dividend for 4 years, which isn't that long in the grand scheme of things. The annual payment during the last 4 years was $0.03 in 2018, and the most recent fiscal year payment was $0.0725. This implies that the company grew its distributions at a yearly rate of about 25% over that duration. We're not overly excited about the relatively short history of dividend payments, however the dividend is growing at a nice rate and we might take a closer look.
The Dividend Looks Likely To Grow
Investors who have held shares in the company for the past few years will be happy with the dividend income they have received. Dynacor Group has seen EPS rising for the last five years, at 36% per annum. Earnings have been growing rapidly, and with a low payout ratio we think that the company could turn out to be a great dividend stock.
We Really Like Dynacor Group's Dividend
Overall, we like to see the dividend staying consistent, and we think Dynacor Group might even raise payments in the future. Earnings are easily covering distributions, and the company is generating plenty of cash. Taking this all into consideration, this looks like it could be a good dividend opportunity.
It's important to note that companies having a consistent dividend policy will generate greater investor confidence than those having an erratic one.
