ATO announced today the annual dividend would rise to $1.38 a year from $1.36. ATO's price is down today while most of the market is up, so I guess that means Wall Street isn't blown away by the size of the dividend.
I was a little disappoited that the dividend hike was only the "standard" 2 cents per share that we have gotten over the last few years. It is better than nothing. Can't complain, ATO is bumping up agaianst its 52 week high.
