Just received my proxy in the mail for the 2011 annual meeting. One of the items up for vote is distribution of earnings. Common stock shareholders are to receive NT$5.5243 per share. This translates into $0.191 USD per share. Since one ADR = 10 common shares, I think we should be expecting approximately $1.91 per ADR share. According to Yahoo, last year's dividend was $1.27, so this is a nice jump!
The dividend was indeed $1.91 per share, declared on July 19th. How long does it usually take Yahoo to update it's dividend number on their summary page? They are still showing 1.51 and 4.2%, when the dividend is currently over 5.5%
I believe that on the CHT company website they have now listed the divvy dates for the adr's as xd 7/19/11; record date7/21/11; pay date 8/24/11. kinda of confusing because the info is not under calendar, events or dividends. Its under shareholder info, dividend distribution and the headers say 2010 dividends. When I checked last week the ADR's dates were still TBA and today they are there.
