How is the FAST Graphs dividend payout ratio calculated? Is it div paid / earnings, or div paid / cash flow, or something else?

The dividend payout ratio reported by FAST Graphs is relative to the metric utilized.  If you are looking at “Adjusted (Operating) Earnings” then the dividend payout ratio would represent the portion of Operating Earnings paid.  If you are looking at “Operating Cash Flow” the dividend payout ratio would represent the portion of Operating Cash Flow, etc.

In other words, FAST Graphs produces the payout ratio of the metric being utilized on the associated performance report as well as the area below the white dividend line on the graph.
