Simply Wall St Dividend Rating: ★★★★★☆

Overview: Arkema S.A. is a global manufacturer and seller of specialty chemicals and advanced materials, with a market capitalization of approximately €6.70 billion.

Operations: Arkema S.A.'s revenue is primarily generated from Advanced Materials at €3.50 billion, followed by Adhesive Solutions at €2.70 billion, Coating Solutions at €2.36 billion, and Intermediates contributing €737 million.

Dividend Yield: 3.9%

Arkema's dividend yield stands at 3.91%, positioned below the top quartile of French dividend payers at 5.24%. Despite a dip in Q1 earnings to €79 million from €132 million year-over-year, dividends remain sustainable with a payout ratio of 74.9% and cash payout ratio of 45.9%.

Amundi

Simply Wall St Dividend Rating: ★★★★☆☆

Overview: Amundi is a publicly owned investment manager with a market capitalization of approximately €13.41 billion, specializing in asset management services.

Operations: Amundi generates revenue primarily through asset management, totaling approximately €6.03 billion.

Dividend Yield: 6.2%

Amundi S.A. recently affirmed a dividend of €4.10 per share, reflecting a commitment to shareholder returns amid steady financial growth, with Q1 revenue up to €824 million from €794 million year-over-year and net income rising to €318 million. Despite this, the firm's dividend history is marked by instability over its 8-year payout period, with a payout ratio at 71.9% suggesting earnings coverage but an uneven track record in dividend reliability. New leadership under Barry Glavin could signal strategic shifts, potentially impacting future dividends and investment strategies.

Earnings have grown by 13.1% over the past year, with projections set at a 5.44% annual increase.

Recently, Eiffage partnered in a €66 million project for flood prevention infrastructure in Copenhagen, indicating strategic expansion but also significant debt levels that may impact future financial flexibility.
