Companies with high payout ratios (how much in earnings, funds from operations and other measures a company pays out in the form of dividends) are a twofold risk:

High payout ratios can lead to a slowing in dividend growth, which means your payout is increasingly likely to fall behind inflation.

The newly legislated entry into the global gaming market by Japan has raised prospects of a $30 billion market forming within the first five years of operation. As the implications of this game changing development sink into the market the clear, immediate winners will be the global gaming giants we alluded to in our SA post on December 6 th. Assuming enabling legislation and licensee announcements proceed as planned before the end of 2017, those stocks will have already started to move north on the news alone.

But the potential bounty will go beyond gaming operators to include the makers of gaming equipment and casino monitoring systems for whom we also see an upside future on the Japan news. For now we look at a single global giant in the field, International Gaming Technology (NYSE: IGT). Japanese companies we likewise believe could share in the business like Konami, Sega Sammy (preparing to open its own casino in South Korea this spring) and Aruze. More on investment possibilities in those companies at a later date.
