Operations: Heidelberg Materials AG generates revenue through several key segments: €11.21 billion from cement, €4.88 billion from aggregates, and €5.90 billion from ready-mixed concrete and asphalt.

Heidelberg Materials AG, while trading at 51.4% below estimated fair value, shows a mixed dividend profile. Its dividends are well-covered by earnings and cash flows with payout ratios of 27.3% and 29.1%, respectively, suggesting sustainability from a financial perspective.

INDUS Holding

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

Overview: INDUS Holding AG is a private equity firm that specializes in mergers, acquisitions, and corporate spin-offs, with a market capitalization of approximately €0.74 billion.

Operations: INDUS Holding AG does not have detailed revenue segments provided in the available information.

Dividend Yield: 4.3%

INDUS Holding AG demonstrates a complex dividend profile. While the company's dividends are well-covered by both earnings and cash flows, with payout ratios of 47.1% and 21% respectively, its dividend history shows instability with significant volatility over the past decade. Despite this, dividends have grown over the same period. As of the latest reports, INDUS faces challenges with a decrease in net income and sales in Q1 2024 compared to the previous year, which could impact future dividend sustainability. The current yield stands at 4.34%, slightly below the top quartile of German dividend stocks at 4.65%.

Wacker Neuson

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

Overview: Wacker Neuson SE, with a market capitalization of €1.16 billion, operates globally in manufacturing and distributing light and compact equipment across Germany, Austria, the United States, and other international markets.

Operations: Wacker Neuson SE generates revenue through three primary segments: Services (€490 million), Light Equipment (€500.70 million), and Compact Equipment (€1.61 billion).

Dividend Yield: 6.7%

Wacker Neuson SE, despite a notable dip in Q1 2024 earnings with sales dropping to €593.1 million and net income falling to €23.3 million, maintains a competitive dividend yield at 6.75%, placing it among the top 25% of German dividend payers. The company's dividends, however, show signs of volatility and are not well covered by cash flows or free cash flows, raising concerns about sustainability despite a reasonable payout ratio of 53.4%. Trading at 35.2% below its estimated fair value suggests potential undervaluation relative to peers.
