NeraTel: What is a sustainable dividend payout?

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I was having a conversation with a friend this evening and he asked whether a 6c dividend per share is sustainable and I remember I replied to a similar question on my FB wall not too long ago. So, for those who do not follow me on FB, here it is:

"One of the assumptions I had when buying into NeraTel was a sustainable dividend payout of 4c per share. So, when I got in at 42c to 63c, I was looking at a yield of 6.3% to 9.5%. At 68c, when I added to my position, the yield was 5.88%. Even at 73c, the yield was 5.48%.

"As a company tries to grow, it is possible that dividend might reduce. However, being a net cash company, NeraTel could sustain higher dividend payouts if they want to. However, this will be essentially a return of capital if DPS should be higher than EPS."

Hi pf,

Not at the current price but if its share price should retrace to stronger supports, I might buy more. :)
