  • Sigma-Aldrich Q4 Profit Drops Slightly, Increases Dividend (SIAL)

    Specialty chemicals maker Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (SIAL) said Wednesday that its fourth quarter 2008 profit dipped slightly from year-ago levels. The company's net income came in at $84.3 million, compared to $84.9 million in the same period a year ago. Revenue declined to $509.8 million from $532 million in the year-ago period. On a per-share basis, the Sigma-Aldrich's EPS rose to 68 cents from 64 cents, but that increase was due to a lower number of diluted shares outstanding. Analysts, on average, had been expecting EPS of 64 cents. Sigma-Aldrich said it expects 2009 earnings per share (EPS) equal to 2008 levels. On the positive side, the company increased its dividend 11.5%, to 14.5 cents per share quarterly. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of SIAL since our early June coverage began, when the stock was trading at $58.12. The company has a 1.54% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $37.70. The stock has technical support around the $29-31 price area. If the shares can continue to rebound, we see overhead resistance around the $43-$48 price points. We would remain on the sidelines for now. Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (SIAL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com Rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars.
