Yes today was the big day the big increase. And it was no slouch.
Altria Group is the parent company of Philip Morris USA (cigarettes), UST (smokeless), John Middleton (cigars), Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, NuMark Corp (vapor) & Philip Morris Capital Corp. PMUSA enjoys a 51% share of the US cigarette market, led by its top cigarette brand Marlboro. MO also owns over 10% of Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer. In March 2008 it spun off its int’l cigarette business to shareholders.
Altria Group Inc. said late Thursday its board of directors has approved a 14% increase to the cigarette maker’s quarterly dividend to 80 cents a share from 70 cents a share. The dividend is payable Oct. 10 to shareholders of record Sept. 14, Altria said.
