3 Small Cap Stocks with Consistent Dividends over last 5 Years

0  comments

From my findings, I learnt that it is not easy to find Small Caps which have paid out consistent dividends to its shareholders over the long-term. This is because Small Caps, for most:

  1. Do not have a solid balance sheet with healthy cash balances.
  2. Keep cash to fund working capital or to expand, if they have cash.

Hence, if you found yourself a handful of Small Caps that have a track record of consistent dividend payouts, they would stand out in the market for Small Caps as they are rare jewels.

Here, I’ll share 3 of such Rare Jewels in this article. They are as follows:

Stock #1: Elk-Desa Resources Bhd (Bursa: 5228)

Elk-Desa Resources Bhd (Elk-Desa) offers hire purchase financing to purchasers of second-hand vehicles in Malaysia since 2004. In addition, Elk-Desa has began to trade furniture in mid-2015.

Over the past 4 years, Elk-Desa has achieved a CAGR of 12% in its hire purchase loan portfolio. Its net hire purchase receivables had increased steadily from RM 252.7 million in 2014 to RM 400.4 million in 2018. Its non-performing loan ratio remained low at 1.0% in 2018.

It had contributed to Elk-Desa’s increase in both sales and profits. Revenue had grown from RM 48.4 million in 2014 to RM 104.1 million in 2018. Meanwhile, it has increased its shareholders’ earnings from RM 16.4 million in 2014 to a total of RM 25.9 million in 2018. It has maintained its dividends per share (DPS) after a rights issue in 2016 at 6.75 sen per annum for the past 3 years.

As I write, Elk-Desa is trading at RM 1.30 a share. Hence, its current P/E Ratio is 13.1 based on its EPS 2018 of 9.91 sen. Its current P/B Ratio is 0.94 based on its net assets a share of RM 1.39 in 2018. Its dividend yield is 5.19% a year which is based on its latest DPS of 6.75 sen in 2018.
