Deep Dive: Why you might want to avoid these 30 dividend stocks

When companies cut their dividends, investors suffer a double whammy: lower fixed payments and a weaker share price.

That’s why Bethesda, Maryland-based Management CV provides institutional clients with lists of stocks for which it is especially concerned about possible dividend cuts.

Investors tend to focus on dividend payout ratios, but Management CV CEO Renny Ponvert reviews combined payout ratios that include regular and special dividends, and share repurchases, divided by earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT).

Management CV was founded by Ponvert in 2007. Before that, he was a private-equity investor, leading the leveraged buyout of Media General Financial Services in 2003 and later serving as the company’s CEO.
