Wells Fargoの最新の分析を見る

Dividends are usually paid out of company profits, so if a company pays out more than it earned then its dividend is usually at greater risk of being cut. Wells Fargo paid out a disturbingly high 217% of its profit as dividends last year, which makes us concerned there’s something we don’t fully understand in the business.

When a company pays out a dividend that is not well covered by profits, the dividend is generally seen as more vulnerable to being cut.

Businesses with shrinking earnings are tricky from a dividend perspective. If earnings decline and the company is forced to cut its dividend, investors could watch the value of their investment go up in smoke. Wells Fargo’s earnings per share have fallen at approximately 26% a year over the previous five years. When earnings per share fall, the maximum amount of dividends that can be paid also falls.

Many investors will assess a company’s dividend performance by evaluating how much the dividend payments have changed over time. Wells Fargo has delivered 7.2% dividend growth per year on average over the past 10 years. The only way to pay higher dividends when earnings are shrinking is either to pay out a larger percentage of profits, spend cash from the balance sheet, or borrow the money. Wells Fargo is already paying out a high percentage of its income, so without earnings growth, we’re doubtful of whether this dividend will grow much in the future.


Should investors buy Wells Fargo for the upcoming dividend? Not only are earnings per share shrinking, but Wells Fargo is paying out a disconcertingly high percentage of its profit as dividends. Generally we think dividend investors should avoid businesses in this situation, as high payout ratios and declining earnings can lead to the dividend being cut. This is not an overtly appealing combination of characteristics, and we’re just not that interested in this company’s dividend.

With that being said, if you’re still considering Wells Fargo as an investment, you’ll find it beneficial to know what risks this stock is facing. Our analysis shows 2 warning signs for Wells Fargo そして、あなたはどんな株を買う前にそれらを知っているべきです。
