I am evaluating your website and considering subscribing. The question I have is "How do you calculate Payout Ratio?"

Hi,


The calculation is broken out here: https://seekingalpha.com/symbol/JNJ/dividends/dividend-safety

Annual Dividends Per Share (FWD) / Annual Non-GAAP EPS (FWD)
When estimates are not available TTM data is used.

For REITs , funds from operations are used instead of EPS. 

Thanks,

Daniel
