This is why, when it comes to dividend-paying companies such as large cap Personal Products operator Unilever (LON:ULVR), which yields 3.06%, it is useful to check how well these payments are covered by earnings.

UNA ULVR

In an update filed as a Form 6-K filing with the SEC today, Unilever warned investors "that it expects underlying sales growth for 2019 to be slightly below its guidance of the lower half of its 3-5% multi-year range." So what. Unilever went on to describe "challenges" it is facing in certain markets, including an "economic slowdown in South Asia" and unspecified "trading conditions in West Africa." As a result of these conditions, management is forecasting that sales growth next year, too, will be weak.

Unilever sales warning shows the global economy is still fragile - CNN

UNA ULVR

A sales warning from one of the world's biggest consumer goods companies is undermining hopes for a significantly stronger global economy in 2020. Unilever, which owns brands including Dove and Ben & Jerry's, said Tuesday that it won't meet its sales growth target for 2019, and warned that weakness will continue into next year.

And even the revised target has been flattered by temporary factors: a change in the way Unilever accounts for hyperinflation added 30 basis points to sales growth in the first half, for example.
