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). 😦
So the first month of 2018 is almost finished and already I have recieved three (!) dividend increases:
Intel (INTC) declares $0.30/share quarterly dividend, 10.1% increase from prior dividend of $0.27. Forward yield 2.65% Payable March 1; for shareholders of record Feb. 7; ex-div Feb. 6.
Which adds additional income of (8 x 4 x 0,03) – 15% = $0,816
Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) declares $0.66/share quarterly dividend, 1.5% increase from prior dividend of $0.65. Forward yield 10.11% Payable Feb. 15; for shareholders of record Jan. 31; ex-div Jan. 30.
Which adds additional income of (13 x 4 x 0,01) – 15% = $0,442
Realty Income (O) declares $0.219/share monthly dividend, 3.1% increase from prior dividend of $0.2125. Forward yield 4.96% Payable Feb. 15; for shareholders of record Feb. 1; ex-div Jan. 31.
Which adds additional income of (10 x 11 x 0,0065) – 15% = $0,60775
Which brings my new forward income to $210,67 + $1,86575 = $212,54 without lifting a finger! Loving this DGI journey!
(Updated 28/12/2017 to include the HRL increase, totally forgot about that one! :))
So one of the last posts this year (only one more coming!) and its the second of its kind: Dividend increases! So that means that I’m getting more money from my existing positions by doing absolutely nothing. It’s like Christmas but whole year round!
Pfizer (PFE) declares $0.34/share quarterly dividend, 6.3% increase from prior dividend of $0.32. Forward yield 3.66% Payable March 1; for shareholders of record Feb. 2; ex-div Feb. 1. Aditionally, the board also authorized a new $10B share repurchase program to be utilized over time. This new program is in addition to the $6.4B remaining under the company’s current authorization.
Since I hold 9 shares this means: ($0,02 x 4 x 9) – 15% = $0,612 additional income.
AT&T (T) declares $0.50/share quarterly dividend, 2% increase from prior dividend of $0.49. Forward yield 5.24% Payable Feb. 1; for shareholders of record Jan. 10; ex-div Jan. 9.
Since I hold 21 shares this means: ($0,01 x 4 x 21) – 15% = $0,714 additional income.
Realty Income Corporation (O) declares $0.2125/share monthly dividend, 0.2% increase from prior dividend of $0.212. Forward yield 4.57% Payable Jan 12; for shareholders of record Jan 2; ex-div Jan 29.
Since I hold 5 shares this means: ($0,0005 x 12 x 5) – 15% = $0,0255 additional income.
Hormel Foods (HRL), the annual dividend on the common stock of the corporation was raised to $0.75 per share from $0.68 per share (10,29%). The Board of Directors authorized the first quarterly dividend of eighteen and three fourths cents (18.75¢) a share to be paid on Feb. 15, 2018, to stockholders of record at the close of business on Jan. 15, 2018.
Since I hold 10 shares this means: ($0,07 x 10) – 15% = $0,595 additional income.
To sum up, these three dividend increases add a total of $1,95 to my forward income, bringing me towards a new total of ($208,74 + $1,35): $210,67! That is just awesome!
This is my first post regarding dividend increases of stocks I own. Its almost magical to realise that I did not have to do ANYTHING to receive extra money. Man I love this DGI stuff.
So for me (somewhat older increase which I had not processed) OHI:
Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) declares $0.65/share quarterly dividend, 1.6% increase from prior dividend of $0.64. Forward yield 8.27% Payable Nov. 15; for shareholders of record Oct. 31; ex-div Oct. 30.
I hold 13 shares of OHI. So that gives me $0.01 x 4 x 13 = $0.52 extra per year.
And last week VFC also announced their increase:
V.F. Corporation (VFC) declares $0.46/share quarterly dividend, 9.5% increase from prior dividend of $0.42. Forward yield 2.77% Payable Dec. 18; for shareholders of record Dec. 8; ex-div Dec. 7.
I hold 6 shares of VFC. So that gives me $0.04 x 4 x 6 = $0.96 extra per year.
These two increases add $1.48 – 15% (foreign witholding tax) = $1,26 to my total forward income. My new forward income is: $170,93 + $1,26 = $172,19!
I found this source for dividend increases: http://dennismccain.weebly.com/dividend-increases which seems to be pretty accurate. I hope this is also useful for someone else.
