    Anyone know why the dividend....

    DHR is not a "dividend" stock but a "growth" stock. It pays a tiny dividend so institutions that are required to buy only dividend paying stocks, can invest in it.

    I too would like to see the dividend increased but it appears that DHR needs the $$ (presumably more than we do) to further its acquisition programs.

    Relying on prior history, I would look for a stock split once the current stock price reaches the $80's.
