China Risun Group's Earnings Easily Cover the Distributions

A big dividend yield for a few years doesn't mean much if it can't be sustained. However, China Risun Group's earnings easily cover the dividend. This means that most of what the business earns is being used to help it grow.

If the trend of the last few years continues, EPS will grow by 12.6% over the next 12 months. If the dividend continues along recent trends, we estimate the payout ratio will be 27%, which is in the range that makes us comfortable with the sustainability of the dividend.

China Risun Group's Dividend Has Lacked Consistency

Even in its short history, we have seen the dividend cut. Since 2019, the first annual payment was CN¥0.15, compared to the most recent full-year payment of CN¥0.13. Doing the maths, this is a decline of about 7.6% per year. A company that decreases its dividend over time generally isn't what we are looking for.

The Dividend Looks Likely To Grow

Given that dividend payments have been shrinking like a glacier in a warming world, we need to check if there are some bright spots on the horizon. We are encouraged to see that China Risun Group has grown earnings per share at 13% per year over the past five years. China Risun Group definitely has the potential to grow its dividend in the future with earnings on an uptrend and a low payout ratio.

We Really Like China Risun Group's Dividend

In summary, it is always positive to see the dividend being increased, and we are particularly pleased with its overall sustainability. Earnings are easily covering distributions, and the company is generating plenty of cash. All in all, this checks a lot of the boxes we look for when choosing an income stock.

Market movements attest to how highly valued a consistent dividend policy is compared to one which is more unpredictable. Still, investors need to consider a host of other factors, apart from dividend payments, when analysing a company.
