I was looking at the financial statements on the Kubota website and it said that they issued 14 yen in dividends for the year ending march 31 2011. Do they not issue any dividends to US investors? When I look at the historical info on yahoo it says they have not issued any dividends in many years?
Even though the Yahoo site doesn't acknowledge it, the US KUB ADR actually does issue dividends on a 6-month basis.
Each time, they look at their profit for that particular period and the amount may vary accordingly. After a 7% tax is withheld, you can expect about $0.74 per share per year, based upon the past year.
