How Healthy is Your Dividend

Up in Canada, one of the financial journalists I like to follow is John Heinzl. The reason is quite simple: he is a proponent of the dividend investing strategy and I have learned a lot about the strategy from him. In this video he talks about one of the important ratios that can indicate how healthy a dividend is coming from a particular company - the dividend payout ratio.

To view this video you will need to click through this link or the image capture below as the Globeinvestor.com does not allow people to embed their videos (which they really should do).

  1. when an american companies pay to many dividend to their shareholders
    when the result per share is $4,00 and the yield is 2% I donot understand why a company pays 40dollarscent EIGHT dollarcent is equally to the yield

    the european method of dividend is better
    40% of the gain is paid to the shareholders means
    40% of $1 is 40 dollarcent when there is alost there will be not paid any dividend rejecting to the gain
