Overview: Super Retail Group Limited, operating in Australia and New Zealand, specializes in the retail of auto, sports, and outdoor leisure products with a market capitalization of approximately A$3.04 billion.

Operations: Super Retail Group Limited generates its revenue through several key segments: Rebel with A$1.30 billion, Super Cheap Auto (SCA) at A$1.48 billion, and Boating, Camping and Fishing (BCF), excluding Macpac, which contributes A$876 million; Macpac itself adds another A$220.60 million.

Dividend Yield: 5.6%

Super Retail Group's recent dividend of A$0.32 per share aligns with its historical pattern of fluctuating dividends, reflecting a payout ratio of 65.5% and cash payout ratio of 28.6%. Despite an unstable dividend track record over the past decade, current dividends are supported by earnings and cash flows. The company's stock trades at a significant discount to estimated fair value, offering relative value in comparison to industry peers. Recent management changes could influence future performance, as noted with Anna Sandham's appointment as Company Secretary on March 25, 2024.

Southern Cross Electrical Engineering

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

Overview: Southern Cross Electrical Engineering Limited, operating in Australia, specializes in electrical, instrumentation, communication, and maintenance services with a market capitalization of approximately A$419.83 million.

Operations: Southern Cross Electrical Engineering Limited generates its revenue primarily through the provision of electrical services, amounting to A$464.88 million.

Dividend Yield: 3.1%

Southern Cross Electrical Engineering has demonstrated inconsistent dividend reliability, with a history of volatile payments over the past decade. Despite this, its current dividends are supported by a payout ratio of 66.5% and a cash payout ratio of 78.2%, indicating coverage by both earnings and cash flows. However, its dividend yield of 3.13% is relatively low compared to the top Australian dividend payers at 6.27%. Recent inclusion in the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries and Emerging Companies Indexes may influence investor perception but does not directly impact dividend stability or growth.
