A large part of investment returns can be generated by dividend-paying stock given their role in compounding returns over time. In the past 10 years Banco Products (India) Limited (NSE:BANCOINDIA) has returned an average of 4.00% per year to investors in the form of dividend payouts. Let’s dig deeper into whether Banco Products (India) should have a place in your portfolio.
5 questions to ask before buying a dividend stock
Whenever I am looking at a potential dividend stock investment, I always check these five metrics:
- Does it pay an annual yield higher than 75% of dividend payers?
- Has it paid dividend every year without dramatically reducing payout in the past?
- Has the amount of dividend per share grown over the past?
- Can it afford to pay the current rate of dividends from its earnings?
- Will it have the ability to keep paying its dividends going forward?
How does Banco Products (India) fare?
The company currently pays out 61.24% of its earnings as a dividend, according to its trailing twelve-month data, which means that the dividend is covered by earnings. Furthermore, analysts have not forecasted a dividends per share for the future, which makes it hard to determine the yield shareholders should expect, and whether the current payout is sustainable, moving forward.
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. Whilst its per-share payments have increased during the past 10 years, there has been some hiccups. Investors have seen reductions in the dividend per share in the past, although, it has picked up again.
Relative to peers, Banco Products (India) has a yield of 5.04%, which is high for Auto Components stocks.
With these dividend metrics in mind, I definitely rank Banco Products (India) as a strong income stock, and is worth further research for anyone who considers dividends an important part of their portfolio strategy. Given that this is purely a dividend analysis, I recommend taking sufficient time to understand its core business and determine whether the company and its investment properties suit your overall goals.
