According to the chart, where dividend yield is displayed, Vivendi has a dividend yield of 17.71%, which is higher than the amount offered by both the market average and companies from France. It is also bigger than average of Consumer Services industry. This high dividend yield might be a sign to worry about the future of the company so deeper analysis is needed.
About the ability of Vivendi to maintain his current dividend of EUR 3.00 per share, an amount that accounts for 17.71%, we should study its payout ratio both on earnings and on cash-flows (see chart below). Vivendi payout on ernings is currently 340.91%, which is higher than the market average, and companies of Consumer Services industry, which are 40.24% and 41.59% respectively. Both figures show that Vivendi can have problems to keep with his present dividend yield.
The payout on earnings should be complemented with the payout on cash flow since it is this latter amount the one which can be distributed to shareholders. Cash flow per share of Vivendi is EUR 0.22 per share, which is lower than the dividend per share paid by the company of EUR 3.00, so the company does not generate enough cash to maintain his dividend in the future.
