    ECAs after-split dividend

    What will be the after-split dividend ?
    The current dividend yield is listed at 5.74%, which obviously is wrong.

    • This quarter it has been decided that the dividend will stay the same, 40 cents, split equally between the two new companies.

      After that, Cenovus intends to pay 3-4% and ECA 2-3%, in line with peers.

      I would guess for Q1 that will be 15-20 cents for ECA and 20-25 cents for Cenovus. Best case (we get a raise) would be top end of the range for both, or 20 cents for ECA and 25 cents for CVE. Dividend rate and dividend policy will be set by respective boards.

      • Thanks, margin. Something not discussed at all is renewable energy.
        Natural Gas could fall under this catergory. Gases are always produced
        by the inner earth and pubble up to the surface. I have been thinking
        about this for a long time, but never had the nerve to bring it up for discussion.

        Just how were the current natural gases produced ?
        Is Natural Gas a product of our earth or some vegetation burried
        1000s of years ago ?

        This answer to this matter could lift or kill Natural Gas investments.
