"In reality, the profits have been so consistent, the company has been able to maintain a rather high dividend payout ratio. Let's take a look at the dividend payout ratio and yield information from past years. The EPS of $1.35 is an estimate for 2016."

Payout ratio has been north of 85% every year except 2012 (when it was 78%). Even though the profits are "consistent", that is hardly much buffer.

This would make a good pick for one of my future analyses, but at a first glance, looks risky dividend wise.
