Does Zaklady Tluszczowe Kruszwica pass our checks?

The current trailing twelve-month payout ratio for the stock is 58.72%, 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.

If there’s one type of stock you want to be reliable, it’s dividend stocks and their stable income-generating ability. Although KSW’s per share payments have increased in the past 10 years, it has not been a completely smooth ride. Shareholders would have seen a few years of reduced payments in this time.

Compared to its peers, Zaklady Tluszczowe Kruszwica generates a yield of 2.10%, which is high for Food stocks but still below the low risk savings rate.
