Additionally, the company’s dividend payout ratio is 0.09. The payout ratio tells us how much of a company’s income is paid out as dividends. A payout ratio of one (1.0) means that 100% of the company’s income is paid out as dividends. A payout ratio above one means the company is dipping into its savings to maintain its dividend, which is not a healthy situation. Companies with little growth prospects should pay most of their income in the form of dividends, which generally means a payout ratio between 0.5 and 1.0. Companies with good growth prospects should retain part of their profits in order to invest in these growth prospects, which translates into a payout ratio of zero to 0.5.
The company’s 3-year dividend growth rate is 4.00%, demonstrating that it has increased its dividend over time.
