Over the last twelve months (prior to 2012-09-30), CHK-US paid a medium quality dividend, which represents a yield of 2.1% at the current price.
Dividend quality trend has not been consistent over the last five years. Dividends were paid during each of these years — of these 3 were medium quality and 2 were low quality.
The ending cash balance is less than the last full year dividend payment and cannot be relied on to cushion any significant reduction of cash flows in the future.
Company numbers are TTM (trailing twelve months) or latest available. Share price data is previous day’s close unless otherwise stated.
