Boiron reported a decline in sales to €493.25 million and net income to €35.83 million for the year ended 2023, with earnings per share decreasing to €2.06. Despite trading below fair value, Boiron's dividend yield at 3.82% remains low compared to top French dividend payers, and its dividend history shows volatility without consistent growth over the past decade.

Dividend Yield: 8.7%

Samse SA reported a decrease in sales to €1.89 billion and net income to €76.43 million for 2023. Despite this, the company maintains a strong dividend yield of 8.72%, supported by a payout ratio of 66.5% and cash payout ratio of 58.9%, indicating that dividends are well-covered by both earnings and cash flows. With earnings forecasted to grow at 4.02% annually, and a low price-to-earnings ratio of 8.2x, Samse's dividends appear sustainable and attractive compared to the broader French market.

Sodexo

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

Overview: Sodexo S.A. operates globally, offering food services and facilities management, with a market capitalization of approximately €12.19 billion.

Operations: Sodexo S.A. generates €8.30 billion, €10.74 billion, and €4.12 billion in revenue from its operations in Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World respectively.

Dividend Yield: 3.7%

Sodexo S.A. experienced a significant shift with a net loss of €74 million in H1 2024, contrasting sharply with the prior year's net income of €440 million. Despite this setback, its sales increased to €12.10 billion from €11.58 billion year-over-year. The company's dividend history shows volatility and unreliability over the past decade, with a current yield of 3.73%, which is low relative to France’s top dividend payers. However, both earnings (63.2% payout ratio) and cash flows (44% cash payout ratio) adequately cover these dividends, suggesting potential for stabilization if earnings forecasts hold true.
