Now that the Motley Fools have mentioned MRO as an example of past dividend growth, is it possible that MRO may indeed soon raise their dividend again. With their current earnings they can now afford at least a 10% increase (I hope). Of course with all the millions that management pays themselves, it's probably questionable that they would worry about their shareholders, known as "nobodys". We own the company, but in recent years that factor has come to be meaningless. And this latter circumstance will fit right in with the current steady flow into Socialism.
I see the posts from the MF and thestreet (the guy who likes dividend stocks) are pumping the possible div increase. however, if they are only going to earn around 2.5 dollars a share this year, a div increase would be unlikely. Besides the yield is already 4%
