While Michelin's dividend yield of 3.75% trails the French market's top quartile, its dividends are well-supported by both earnings and cash flow, with payout ratios of 48.7% and 31.6%, respectively.

Métropole Télévision, with a dividend of €1.25 and a payout ratio of 67%, demonstrates a commitment to shareholder returns, supported by robust net income growth to €234.1 million in 2023 from €161.5 million the previous year. However, future earnings are expected to decline annually by 4.8% over the next three years, posing potential challenges to sustaining dividends at current levels despite recent increases and coverage by earnings and cash flows. The launch of M6+ indicates strategic investments in digital transformation which could impact financial stability and dividend reliability long-term.
