Simply Wall St Dividend Rating: ★★★★★☆

Overview: BRC Asia Limited operates in the prefabrication of steel reinforcement for concrete, serving markets in Singapore, Australia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India and other international locations with a market capitalization of approximately SGD 592.60 million.

Operations: BRC Asia Limited generates revenue primarily through two segments: Trading, which brought in SGD 413.27 million, and Fabrication and Manufacturing, contributing SGD 1.21 billion.

Dividend Yield: 7.4%

BRC Asia offers a compelling 7.41% dividend yield, ranking in the top 25% of Singapore's dividend payers. Despite its attractive yield and valuation at 54% below estimated fair value, investors should note the inconsistency in dividend payments over the past decade and a high debt level. However, dividends are well-supported by both earnings and cash flows, with payout ratios of 38% and 28.1%, respectively, suggesting sustainability from a financial standpoint.

Sheng Siong Group (SGX:OV8)

Simply Wall St Dividend Rating: ★★★★☆☆

Overview: Sheng Siong Group Ltd is an investment holding company that operates a chain of supermarket retail stores in Singapore, with a market capitalization of approximately SGD 2.26 billion.

Operations: Sheng Siong Group Ltd generates its revenue primarily through supermarket operations selling consumer goods, totaling SGD 1.39 billion.

Dividend Yield: 4.2%

Sheng Siong Group recently declared a dividend of 3.20 cents per share, reflecting a stable payout amid modest year-over-year earnings growth from SGD 33.24 million to SGD 36.32 million in Q1 2024. Despite this, the company's dividend yield of 4.17% remains below the top quartile in Singapore's market, and its historical volatility in dividend payments suggests potential concerns for long-term reliability. However, with a payout ratio of 68.7% and cash flow coverage at 50.1%, current dividends appear sustainable based on recent financial performances.

The company's dividends have shown stability and growth over the past decade, with a current yield of 3.58%, which is below the top quartile in Singapore's market (6.25%). However, dividends are well-supported by both earnings and cash flows, with payout ratios at 17.9% and 59.3% respectively, indicating sustainability even if future profitability pressures persist.
