I do not own this stock of Andrew Peller Ltd (TSX-ADW.A, OTC-ADWPF), but I used to. This stock was on Mike Higgs' dividend growth stock list. I owned this stock as Andres Wines Ltd between 1996 and 2000. I held it for 4.6 year and made a total return of 5.41% with 5.35% from dividends and 0.06% from capital gain. That is why I sold in 2000.
When I was updating my spreadsheet, I noticed the it has only been a dividend growth stock since 2007 and that earnings are growing faster than sales over the past 5 and 10 years.
Dividends were started in 1988. Dividend yields were good at first (4 to 5% range) but there was only one increase and that was in 1998. Dividend increases started in 2007, but were irregular at first. There have only been regular increases since 2012. Therefore, we are only interested in dividend increases for the past 5 and 10 years which are at 7.94% and 5.80% per year. The last increase was for 13.9% and it was in 2018.
They can afford their dividends. The Dividend Payout Ratio for 2018 financial year (ending in March 2018) was 24.8%with 5 year coverage at 30%. The DPR for CFPS for 2018 is 15% with 5 year coverage at 12%.
The company has good debt ratios no matter which ones you look at. The Long Term Debt/Market Cap Ratio is just 0.15 for 2018 so this is good.
