As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Andritz AG (WBAG:ANDR), it is a highly-regarded dividend-paying company that has been able to sustain great financial health over the past. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. If you’re interested in understanding beyond my high-level commentary, take a look at the report on Andritz here.
Adequate balance sheet average dividend payer
ANDR’s strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This implies that ANDR manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. Debt funding requires timely payments on interest to lenders. ANDR’s earnings sufficiently covered its interest in the prior year, which indicates there’s low risk associated with the company not being able to meet these key expenses.
For those seeking income streams from their portfolio, ANDR is a robust dividend payer as well. Over the past decade, the company has consistently increased its dividend payout, reaching a yield of 3.53%.
