General Electric (GE) was famous for its sustained dividend payments and dividend increases. However, the company lost this status after CEO John Flannery’s decision to trim dividends by 50% in November last year. After the financial crisis, GE witnessed a sharp decline in its dividend yield, which was as high as ~12% during that period. Between March 2010 to September 2017, its dividend yield stayed in the 2.5% to 3.5% range. However, in 2018, the company’s dividend yield has gone up steadily.
