Based on the historical divi yield of 2.5% we could easily see a 25% divi increase come next Feb. if we stay at the current share price!
Looks like I WAS wrong Hillarywinsin2016….but not a WRONG as your 5% guess...I thought a divi increase of 25% and it is 35%!! Hope your wrong about 2016 TOO!!!
The stock has risen very consistently since 1980. The 4 splits have come about every 10 years, and they've all occured around the current price ($130-150), knocking it back down to about $65-75, only to double again 10 years later.
25% increase will never happen. Maybe 5%.
