Over the last twelve months (prior to September 30, 2017), QCRH-US paid a low quality dividend.
The source of the company’s cash to support the dividend paid over the last twelve months is operating cash flow (coverage of 17.64x), investing cash flow (coverage of -129.31x), issuance cash flow (coverage of 110.58x) and twelve-month prior cash (coverage of 25.96x), for a total dividend coverage of 24.87x.
