A Closer Look at Aviva Plc (ADR) (AV)’s Dividend Potential

The company’s turnaround story is likely to take some time to bed in as severe restructuring takes hold, keeping earnings per share under pressure and consequently shareholder payouts.

Last week’s results showed that the life insurance giant’s recovery plan is making good progress, which bodes well for decent earnings growth over the long term. But I would like to see new business inflows continue to punch solid momentum, as well as further evidence of substantial cost reduction, before taking the plunge.
