Suncorp Dividend History Graph

The Banking sector has been one of the favorites for investors over the years due to its decent returns and solid dividend history. It’s no surprise why the sector makes up around 30% of the entire market index. Over the past decade, big banking stocks have managed to maintain a steady flow of income for investors, with an exception of the COVID dip.

Suncorp typically announces a dividend with the release of its half-year results in February and full-year results in August as seen in their financial calendar. SUN Dividends are typically paid twice a year, in April (interim dividend) and September/October (final dividend).

Suncorp has paid dividends every year since 1989. Including the COVID-19 recessionary period. All dividends have been fully franked. They also offer a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP).

Suncorp Dividend Payout Ratio

Suncorp Dividend, Suncorp Dividend dates, Suncorp dividend History

A companies dividend payout ratio is the ratio of the total dividend sum paid out relative to the net income of the company. It is the percentage of earnings paid to shareholders in dividends.

The FY21 full-year dividend represented a payout ratio of 79.3% of cash earnings at the top of the Group’s 60% to 80% target range, returning to pre-COVID-19 payout ratios.

Based on current averages SUN’s payout ratio is around 81%, which we expect to remain constant for the foreseeable future.

So far in 2021, we have seen SUN payout its interim dividend of 26 cents, final dividend of 40 cents, a special dividend of 8 cents and an on-market share buy-back.

The Board has declared a fully franked final ordinary dividend of 40 cents per share. This brings total fully franked ordinary dividends for FY21 to 66 cents per share. In addition, the Board has declared a fully franked 8 cent special dividend and has announced an on-market share buyback of up to $250 million.

SUN has $471 Million in franking credits, this leaves the group well equipped to maintain fully-franked dividends.

SUN Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)

RIO Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) Facts

A DRIP or dividend reinvestment plan allows investors to automatically reinvest their dividends for additional shares in the company. Using this method, the investor will still receive the franking credit and will still be taxed on the cash value of their dividend. 

The simplest way to elect to participate in a company’s DRIP is through the related share registry (i.e. Computershare or Link Market Services).

  • In Computershare it’s as simple as going ‘my profile’- ‘Reinvestment plans’ and selecting the company and electing to participate in full or partially. That is either the entire amount or a partial amount of your dividend is reinvested.
  • On Link you simply click view details of the company of interest and update it in the ‘payments and tax’ section.
