4 High Dividend Stocks With Impressive Cash Flow

Published 04/28/2023, 06:25 PM
  • Dividend stocks can provide regular income and outperform the broader market.
  • When building a dividend portfolio, investors should consider two key factors: dividend yield and annual cash flow.
  • Four U.S. companies exhibit a high dividend yield and healthy annual cash flow.
  • In this article, we will use InvestingPro tools to review four companies that exhibit two crucial characteristics that dividend investors are looking for:

    1. A Good Dividend Yield

    The dividend yield shows the dividends a company pays out to its shareholders each year in relation to its stock price. It tells us how much of our investment we can get back just from what the company pays out.

    It is expressed as a percentage and is calculated by dividing the profit on the investment by the money invested:

    Profitability (%) = (Profit /Amount invested) * 100

    For example, if a company's shares are trading at $13.29 and pay a dividend of $0.75 per share, with a dividend yield of +5.6%.

    2. A Healthy Annual Cash Flow

    This reflects a company's liquidity status and ability to meet debt obligations.

    The difference between income and expenses is called net cash flow, which is the payments already received instead of net sales, which includes receivables.

    Net cash flow shows that the company's assets can repay debts, reinvest in the business and return money to shareholders.

    Well, now that we are clear on the concepts of dividend yield and cash flow, let's look at four companies with these two characteristics.

    1. Pioneer Natural Resources

    Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD) is an American hydrocarbon exploration company based in Irving, Texas. The company was founded in 1997 due to the merger of Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company and MESA Inc.
