Owens & Minor: Dividend At Risk, But Shares Not Expensive
publication date: Jun 24, 2018
We’re fans of consistent dividend payers with strong free-cash-flow coverage and solid balance sheets, but we remain very skeptical of companies with a dividend that seems “too good to be true” as the eye-popping dividend is often a byproduct of an egregious drop in the price of the stock. We believe Owens & Minor is an example of an overleveraged, slow-growth entity that may have trouble maintaining its dividend in coming years. We value shares at $20 each, however, so the market may be overreacting a bit on the downside.
