Dividend Increases

Dividend increases February + March 2018 (ADM, CSCO, AD)

Ah yes, another post about dividend increases! I received three dividend increases. That brings the 2018 total to 5 increases already!

Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) declares $0.335/share quarterly dividend, 4.7% increase from prior dividend of $0.32. Forward yield 3.3% Payable March 13;
for shareholders of record Feb. 20; ex-div Feb. 16.

Cisco (CSCO) has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.33 per common share, a 4-cent increase or up 14% over the previous quarter’s dividend, to be paid on April 25, 2018 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on April 5, 2018.

Last week Ahold Delhaize (AD) announced a 10.5% increase in its yearly dividend. The dividend is raised from €0.57 to €0.63. This represents a payout ratio of 47%. This dividend is up for approval by the General Meeting of Shareholders on April 11, 2018. The dividend pay date is April 26, 2018 to shareholders of record on April 16, 2018 (ex dividend April 13, 2018). (thanks for the heads up Pollie!)

The calculations I have made so far totaled up to a forward income of $261,45. Weird thing is that I just redid my total dividend calculations by simply manually adding them to my excel and then my new total is: $258,62 (including these increases).

So thats a bit dissapointing, my guess is I made a wrong calculation somewhere (and maybe messed with the USD/EUR conversion). 😦

    1. The only reason I don’t have Unilever already is that the price exploded due to the Kraft takeover bid. I’ve been waiting for an entry point.

      I think it’s a healthy development and am looking forward to the moment I’ll finally be able to make a purchase. I have so much UN products in my house…
