Village Super Market payment has strong revenue coverage

While it’s great to have a strong dividend yield, we also need to determine if the payout is sustainable. The last payment was 74% of the profits, but the cash flow was much higher. Since the dividend only pays money to shareholders, we are more concerned with the cash payout ratio from which we can see that there is plenty left for reinvestment in the company.

Looking ahead, could drop 4.0% if the company can not turn the situation around in recent years. Assuming the dividend continues according to recent trends, we think the payout ratio could reach 77%, which is definitely on the higher side.

Dividend volatility

The history of the company’s dividends has been marked by instability, with at least one decline in the past 10 years. Since 2011, the dividend has increased from US $ 0.45 to US $ 1.00. This works out to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 8.3% per year over that time period. We love to see dividends rise at a reasonable rate, but with at least a substantial reduction in payouts, we’re not sure this dividend stock would be ideal for someone who intends to live off their income.

Dividend growth can be hard to achieve

Growth in earnings per share could be a mitigating factor considering past dividend fluctuations. Village Super Market has seen its earnings per share drop 4.0% per year over the past five years. Falling profits will inevitably lead the company to pay a lower dividend in line with lower profits.

Our thoughts on the dividend of the village super market

In summary, while it is good to see that the dividend has not been reduced, we are a little cautious about the Village Super Market payouts as there could be issues maintaining them going forward. In the past, payments have been volatile, but in the short term the dividend could be reliable as the company generates enough cash to cover it. Overall, we don’t think this company has the makings of a good income stock.

Companies with a stable dividend policy are likely to benefit from greater investor interest than those with a more inconsistent approach.
