    American Electric Power Co. Inc. announced Tuesday a 5.7% increase to its quarterly dividend, to 74 cents a share from 70 cents. The electricity transmission company's new dividend will be payable Dec. 10 to shareholders of record on Nov. 10. The stock slipped 0.2% to $91.12 in afternoon trading. At current prices, the new annual dividend rate implies a dividend yield of 3.25%, compared with the yield for the SPDR Utilities Select Sector ETF of 3.04% and the implied yield for the S&P 500 of 1.63%, according to FactSet. "AEP has paid a cash dividend on its common stock every quarter since 1910, and we're pleased our strategic business decisions continue to provide increased returns to our shareholders," said Chief Executive Nicholas Akins.
