Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc.’s dividend yield is 3.09 percent and its dividend payout is 242.86 percent. This compares to a peer average dividend yield of 3.11 percent and a payout level of 107.14 percent. This combination of a relatively lower dividend yield and a higher payout ratio suggest that the dividend payout might not be sustainable. Supporting this is the company’s average dividend quality score of 42 out of a possible score of 100, which points to some weakness in being able to sustain the higher payout ratio.
