The last increase was 2 years ago, although last year, when they spun off PSX, it amounted to a net 10 cent (now 12.5 or even 16 cents) increase in the quarterly dividend.
Any one knows if COP might raise the dividend this year?
VLO is up huge today on the news of their dividend raise
Shell just raised. When is next Ex Div Date for COP?
they have regularly raised their dividend the last few years under Mulvas direction, you should include the PSX dividend as it was a spinoff and COP kept theirs the same after the spinoff.
My guess is this qrt or next and somewhere between 7 and 10 cents
I'll hazard a guess they will increase it in May....$0.04/Q....nominally 6%
I too believe we will see an increase of $.04/share increase in the first half of 2013.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
