BRC Asia

Simply Wall St Dividend Rating: ★★★★★☆

Overview: BRC Asia Limited operates in the prefabrication of steel reinforcement for concrete, serving markets including Singapore, Australia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India and internationally; it has a market capitalization of approximately SGD 0.58 billion.

Operations: BRC Asia Limited generates revenue primarily through two segments: Trading, which contributes SGD 413.27 million, and Fabrication and Manufacturing, accounting for SGD 1.21 billion.

Dividend Yield: 7.5%

BRC Asia offers a dividend yield of 7.51%, higher than the average in the Singapore market, indicating attractive income potential for investors. The company's dividends are sustainably supported by earnings with a payout ratio of 38% and cash flows with a cash payout ratio of 28.1%. However, its dividend history shows volatility and unreliability over the past decade, posing risks to consistency in future payouts.

APAC Realty

Simply Wall St Dividend Rating: ★★★★☆☆

Overview: APAC Realty Limited operates as an investment holding company, offering real estate services across Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, and other international markets with a market capitalization of approximately SGD 140.30 million.

Operations: APAC Realty Limited generates revenue primarily through real estate brokerage, contributing SGD 548.88 million, and a smaller portion from rental income amounting to SGD 2.15 million.

Dividend Yield: 6.3%

APAC Realty, despite a recent dividend cut to 1.4 Singapore cents per share, maintains a competitive yield of 5.4% based on its latest closing price. The company's dividends are relatively well-covered with a payout ratio of 78%, aligning with its policy to distribute 50%-80% of profits. However, profitability has declined, as evidenced by a drop in net income from SGD 26.56 million to SGD 11.78 million year-over-year and reduced profit margins from 3.8% to 2.1%. Additionally, the firm's dividend history is marked by instability over its six years of payments.

Operations: Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited generates revenue through financial services across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Greater China, and the rest of the Asia Pacific.

Dividend Yield: 5.8%

Despite a history of volatile dividends, the recent dividend announcement for fiscal year 2023 is set at 42 cents per share, payable on May 21, reflecting some level of commitment to shareholder returns. The bank's dividend coverage is reasonable with current earnings covering payouts at a ratio of approximately 52.9%. However, its dividend yield of approximately 5.82% remains below the top quartile for Singapore market payers.
