Dividend Insight

OGE Energy has a dividend payout ratio of 70.7%, which indicates that the Company spends approximately $0.71 for dividend distribution out of every $1.00 earned. The dividend payout ratio reflects how much amount a company is returning to shareholders versus how much money it is keeping on hand to reinvest in growth, to pay off debt, and/or to add to its cash reserves.

According to analysts' estimates, OGE Energy is forecasted to report earnings of $2.03 per share for the next year, which is substantially above its annualized dividend of $1.33 per share.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, OGE Energy's net cash provided from operating activities totaled $463.7 million compared to $426.9 million for the year ago corresponding period. The Company's strong financial position indicates its ability to absorb any fluctuations in earnings and cash flow and to sustain the dividend distribution for a long period.
