Is It Worth Considering China Electronics Huada Technology Company Limited (HKG:85) For Its Upcoming Dividend?

Simply Wall St ·  07/07 06:25

Readers hoping to buy China Electronics Huada Technology Company Limited (HKG:85) for its dividend will need to make their move shortly, as the stock is about to trade ex-dividend. The ex-dividend date is one business day before a company's record date, which is the date on which the company determines which shareholders are entitled to receive a dividend. The ex-dividend date is of consequence because whenever a stock is bought or sold, the trade takes at least two business day to settle. Therefore, if you purchase China Electronics Huada Technology's shares on or after the 11th of July, you won't be eligible to receive the dividend, when it is paid on the 29th of July.

The company's upcoming dividend is HK$0.019 a share, following on from the last 12 months, when the company distributed a total of HK$0.019 per share to shareholders. Calculating the last year's worth of payments shows that China Electronics Huada Technology has a trailing yield of 2.3% on the current share price of HK$0.84. Dividends are an important source of income to many shareholders, but the health of the business is crucial to maintaining those dividends. That's why we should always check whether the dividend payments appear sustainable, and if the company is growing.

Have Earnings And Dividends Been Growing?

Businesses with shrinking earnings are tricky from a dividend perspective. Investors love dividends, so if earnings fall and the dividend is reduced, expect a stock to be sold off heavily at the same time. With that in mind, we're discomforted by China Electronics Huada Technology's 21% per annum decline in earnings in the past five years. Ultimately, when earnings per share decline, the size of the pie from which dividends can be paid, shrinks.

Another key way to measure a company's dividend prospects is by measuring its historical rate of dividend growth. China Electronics Huada Technology has seen its dividend decline 5.5% per annum on average over the past eight years, which is not great to see. It's never nice to see earnings and dividends falling, but at least management has cut the dividend rather than potentially risk the company's health in an attempt to maintain it.

The Bottom Line

Has China Electronics Huada Technology got what it takes to maintain its dividend payments? China Electronics Huada Technology's earnings per share are down over the past five years, although it has the cushion of a low payout ratio, which would suggest a cut to the dividend is relatively unlikely. China Electronics Huada Technology ticks a lot of boxes for us from a dividend perspective, and we think these characteristics should mark the company as deserving of further attention.

So while China Electronics Huada Technology looks good from a dividend perspective, it's always worthwhile being up to date with the risks involved in this stock.
