Dividend increase should come tomorrow (last year's increase was announced on Friday February 18th). Any guesses on what the new annual rate will be? I'm guessing $2.10/yr
4387 over 10,000, or 43.87%.Phy
Does anyone know what the payout ratio was on the recent dividend increase?
So, the dividend increase was 3 cents a quarter. Well, money has to come from somewhere to buy stock back.Phy
Screw unlocking value ... gimmie a bigger dividend increase!
Historically it is low. There will be extra costs associated with the company split. The added costs may be responsible for the reduced dividend increase.
I think you both are close to the increase. I'll predict 2.09/year although 2.10 is a good number.
All right, I'll go out on a limb-----2.12
I think 4cents/qtr, 16cents/yr, $2.08 total.Well within guidelines...however, I hope you're right.Son
got a winner here...way to go.
