Subject: 19902/19939 - Re: ENB at 6%?

Using earnings to calculate a payout ratio is not always relevant since net income includes non cash items that will have no impact on a company's ability to pay its dividends. In the case of Enbridge we should use a cash flow approach which gives a payout of about 65%, and they expect to grow it by 10% per share through 2020, which would support its dividend growth of 10% per year. So the dividend is safe and growing. I think it's a buying opportunity.
