Simply Wall St
·3 min read

It looks like IntegraFin Holdings plc (LON:IHP) is about to go ex-dividend in the next three days. You can purchase shares before the 24th of December in order to receive the dividend, which the company will pay on the 22nd of January.

IntegraFin Holdings's next dividend payment will be UK£0.056 per share, and in the last 12 months, the company paid a total of UK£0.083 per share. Based on the last year's worth of payments, IntegraFin Holdings has a trailing yield of 1.5% on the current stock price of £5.47. Dividends are a major contributor to investment returns for long term holders, but only if the dividend continues to be paid. We need to see whether the dividend is covered by earnings and if it's growing.

View our latest analysis for IntegraFin Holdings

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. IntegraFin Holdings is paying out an acceptable 60% of its profit, a common payout level among most companies.

When a company paid out less in dividends than it earned in profit, this generally suggests its dividend is affordable. The lower the % of its profit that it pays out, the greater the margin of safety for the dividend if the business enters a downturn.

Have Earnings And Dividends Been Growing?

Companies with consistently growing earnings per share generally make the best dividend stocks, as they usually find it easier to grow dividends per share. If earnings decline and the company is forced to cut its dividend, investors could watch the value of their investment go up in smoke. That's why it's comforting to see IntegraFin Holdings's earnings have been skyrocketing, up 23% per annum for the past five years.

The main way most investors will assess a company's dividend prospects is by checking the historical rate of dividend growth. IntegraFin Holdings has delivered 14% dividend growth per year on average over the past two years. It's exciting to see that both earnings and dividends per share have grown rapidly over the past few years.

To Sum It Up

Has IntegraFin Holdings got what it takes to maintain its dividend payments? Earnings per share are growing nicely, and IntegraFin Holdings is paying out a percentage of its earnings that is around the average for dividend-paying stocks. We think this is a pretty attractive combination, and would be interested in investigating IntegraFin Holdings more closely.
