6 Dividend Stocks With Strong Payout Ratios

Southern Copper

Southern Copper (SCCO - Get Report) is an Arizona-based miner of copper, zinc, molybdenum and other precious metals. Copper sales make up nearly 76% of total revenue. The company has been able to increase revenue and earnings per share every year since 2009, having felt the impact of the great recession.

For the most part, copper spot prices have trading in a range of $3 to $4 for pound, with the exception of the decline associated with the Great Recession.

What is also consistent for Southern Copper is cash flow from operations. The company doubled its cash flow in 2010 to $1.92 billion and then increased it by 8% in 2011 and is expected to increase by another 37% in 2012.
