National Bank Holdings' Earnings Will Easily Cover The Distributions

We like to see a healthy dividend yield, but that is only helpful to us if the payment can continue.

National Bank Holdings has a long history of paying out dividends, with its current track record at a minimum of 10 years. Past distributions do not necessarily guarantee future ones, but National Bank Holdings' payout ratio of 31% is a good sign as this means that earnings decently cover dividends.

Looking forward, earnings per share is forecast to fall by 3.0% over the next year. But if the dividend continues along recent trends, we estimate the future payout ratio could be 37%, which we would consider to be quite comfortable looking forward, with most of the company's earnings left over to grow the business in the future.

National Bank Holdings Has A Solid Track Record

The company has a sustained record of paying dividends with very little fluctuation. Since 2014, the annual payment back then was $0.20, compared to the most recent full-year payment of $1.12. This means that it has been growing its distributions at 19% per annum over that time. It is good to see that there has been strong dividend growth, and that there haven't been any cuts for a long time.

We Could See National Bank Holdings' Dividend Growing

The company's investors will be pleased to have been receiving dividend income for some time. We are encouraged to see that National Bank Holdings has grown earnings per share at 8.6% per year over the past five years. A low payout ratio and decent growth suggests that the company is reinvesting well, and it also has plenty of room to increase the dividend over time.

We Really Like National Bank Holdings' Dividend

Overall, we think this could be an attractive income stock, and it is only getting better by paying a higher dividend this year. The distributions are easily covered by earnings, and there is plenty of cash being generated as well. We should point out that the earnings are expected to fall over the next 12 months, which won't be a problem if this doesn't become a trend, but could cause some turbulence in the next year. All in all, this checks a lot of the boxes we look for when choosing an income stock.

Market movements attest to how highly valued a consistent dividend policy is compared to one which is more unpredictable.
