Transcript of "Two 100 year dow dividends"

  1. 1. Two 100-Year-Old Dow Dividends
  2. 2. Dividends Crush the Market Over half of the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s return since 2001 is from dividends. • The compounding effects of dividends are one of the best ways for investors to beat the stock market. • Two Dow companies have paid a dividend for over 100 straight years: Procter & Gamble and DuPont.
  3. 3. Procter & Gamble’s Dividend History Procter & Gamble has paid a dividend every year since it was founded in 1890. • P&G’s dividend has increased for 58 straight years. • The current quarterly payout of $0.6436 per share equates to a 3.2% yield for investors. • P&G’s payout ratio, or percentage of earnings paid in dividends, has risen recently but is still a comfortable 62%.
  4. 4. The Products Behind a Power Dividend Procter & Gamble’s main business is selling consumer staples. • Products like Charmin, Pampers, and Tide are products that are stable through good times and bad. • This stable business allows P&G consistent cash flow for dividends.
  5. 5. DuPont’s Sneaky Strong Dividend DuPont has paid a dividend for 439 straight quarters (110 years). • Current quarterly dividend of $0.45 per share leads to a 2.8% yield. • Payout ratio has consistently been around 60% for the past decade (except a short time during the recession).
  6. 6. DuPont’s Dividend Growth DuPont has grown its dividend over time, but not every single year like P&G has done.
  7. 7. What Drives DuPont’s Dividend DuPont is driven by three main businesses. • Agriculture accounted for 43% of sales and 64% of operating income last quarter. • Performance Materials was 16% of sales and 13% of operating income last quarter. • Performance Chemicals accounted for 15% of sales and 9% of operating income last quarter. •DuPont plans to spin off the Performance Chemicals business but is considering other alternatives, such as a sale.
  8. 8. Creating a Market Beater When including dividends, DuPont has narrowly lagged the Dow since the early 1970s, while P&G has crushed the market.
  9. 9. What It Takes to Create a Century-Long Dividend There are three keys to long-lasting dividends. • Stable core business (e.g., consumer staples and agriculture) • Reliable profits • Management focus on shareholder value and dividends
