– This week’s results.
There are 2 new Dividend Contenders. (10 consecutive years of announcing increases in Dividends to shareholders):
HKG:3360 Far East Horizon  1-year dividend growth 16%. 5-year dividend growth 13%. Yield 5.9%
HKG:1972 Swire Properties   1-year dividend growth 4%.  5-year dividend growth 6%. Yield 4.7% Although Swire is into Property Investment, their liability ratios seem on the good side.

And most remarkable: Both companies never decreased their dividends! Go and check their charts.

Another stock that got my attention is HKG:1177 Sino Biopharm. Their numbers on 2021 look fine. Yield and dividend growth are not where I would like to see it, BUT we are looking at a Blue Chip company here. One metric that stands out is their Return on Equity.

1-What is RoE? It is Net Income/shareholders equity.
2-What does it mean? It means how well the company is using the money paid by shareholders (for their shares) in using that for making profit. Let’s say net income is 1000 and shareholders equity is 100, the Return on Equity is 10.
Out of every dollar paid by the shareholders, 10 dollar profit is generated. (uber-simplified, but you get the meaning, right?)

If there is not enough money made from equity, the chances of us getting dividends are slim. Dividends normally come from profit. More equity than money to be divided, is trouble. Maybe not right away, but companies can not keep paying dividends out of their reserves.

3- What is a good RoE number? Normally any number above 10 is wonderful.
In the case of HKG:1177 Sino Biopharm. The RoE in 2021 was 48. Every dollar in shares made them 48 dollar. Good deal!
That and the indicators for Value became favorable since 3 weeks. And you know how we like those Value numbers when we look t Blue Chips. There might be an opportunity in the air.
