Cortina Holdings

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

Overview: Cortina Holdings Limited operates as an investment holding company that retails and distributes timepieces and accessories across several countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, with a market cap of approximately SGD 538.13 million.

Operations: Cortina Holdings Limited generates revenue primarily through its retail and wholesale segments, with retail sales amounting to SGD 771.57 million and wholesale sales totaling SGD 129.15 million.

Dividend Yield: 4.9%

Cortina Holdings has demonstrated a mixed track record in its dividend distributions, characterized by volatility with significant annual fluctuations over the past decade. Despite this, its dividends are well-supported financially, evidenced by a low payout ratio of 4.8% and a reasonable cash payout ratio of 74.5%, ensuring that earnings and cash flows adequately cover the dividend payments. However, Cortina's dividend yield of 4.92% falls short when compared to the top quartile of Singaporean dividend payers at 6.17%. Additionally, while Cortina's price-to-earnings ratio stands at an attractive 7.7x against the broader Singapore market average of 11.5x, potential investors should weigh these aspects carefully due to the stock's historical dividend instability and below-average yield.

Operations: Delfi Limited generates revenue primarily through its operations in Indonesia, which brought in SGD 370.41 million, and its regional markets contributing SGD 185.07 million.

Dividend Yield: 6.6%

Delfi Limited, despite trading 42.4% below its estimated fair value, faces challenges with its dividend reliability and coverage. The company's dividend payments have shown volatility over the past decade and are not well-supported by earnings or cash flows, with a high cash payout ratio of 1776.7%. However, Delfi has reported a modest growth in earnings by 5.4% over the past year and offers a competitive yield at 6.62%, placing it in the top quartile of Singaporean dividend payers. Recent board changes aim to enhance governance but may also introduce uncertainty regarding future dividend policies.

The bank maintains a dividend payout ratio of 50%, with dividends well-covered by earnings. However, the dividend history shows some volatility over the past decade, reflecting occasional fluctuations in payout consistency.
