Fujikon Industrial Holdings Limited's (HKG:927) periodic dividend will be increasing on the 29th of December to HK$0.02, with investors receiving 100% more than last year's HK$0.01. Based on this payment, the dividend yield for the company will be 5.6%, which is fairly typical for the industry.

Our analysis indicates that 927 is potentially overvalued!

Fujikon Industrial Holdings' Distributions May Be Difficult To Sustain

Solid dividend yields are great, but they only really help us if the payment is sustainable. Even in the absence of profits, Fujikon Industrial Holdings is paying a dividend. Along with this, it is also not generating free cash flows, which raises concerns about the sustainability of the dividend.

Looking forward, earnings per share could 58.5% over the next year if the trend of the last few years can't be broken. This will push the company into unprofitability, which means the managers will have to choose between suspending the dividend, or paying it out of cash reserves.

Dividend Volatility

The company's dividend history has been marked by instability, with at least one cut in the last 10 years. The annual payment during the last 10 years was HK$0.18 in 2012, and the most recent fiscal year payment was HK$0.04. The dividend has fallen 78% over that period. A company that decreases its dividend over time generally isn't what we are looking for.

Dividend Growth Potential Is Shaky

Given that the track record hasn't been stellar, we really want to see earnings per share growing over time. Fujikon Industrial Holdings' EPS has fallen by approximately 59% per year during the past five years. Dividend payments are likely to come under some pressure unless EPS can pull out of the nosedive it is in.

Fujikon Industrial Holdings' Dividend Doesn't Look Great

In conclusion, we have some concerns about this dividend, even though it being raised is good. The company isn't making enough to be paying as much as it is, and the other factors don't look particularly promising either. Overall, this doesn't get us very excited from an income standpoint.

Investors generally tend to favour companies with a consistent, stable dividend policy as opposed to those operating an irregular one.
