I guess that if LCUT is earning much more and if they can keep up with higher earnings, the dividend will be raised. 5% ealrier this year was very good. I got in at $6 so I have abt 5% return. But as someone said, the share doubled so the yield halved and is now around 2%. I do believe that we can expect a higher dividend after next 2 Q if all is running smoothly.
