How BlackRock Is Rewarding Its Shareholders

BlackRock (BLK) is giving consistent returns to shareholders in the form of dividends and repurchases backed by consistent operating performance. The company declared a quarterly dividend of $2.88 in the first quarter compared to $2.50 in the first quarter of 2017, forming an annualized yield of 2.2%. The Trump administration’s tax cuts are expected to help equities command higher premiums as well as a long-term shift toward equities rather than debt offerings.
