2 Dividend Increases

image Yes 2 increases on the same day, how awesome is that? To me its very awesome.

First one on Sept. 18th and the one we will start with is O. Yes the fifth raise since last year that is awesome just in itself. these raises are generally smaller but still raises. They all count though no matter how small.

Realty Income Corp:

* 98TH COMMON STOCK MONTHLY DIVIDEND INCREASE DECLARED BY REALTY INCOME

* INCREASE IN COMPANY’S COMMON STOCK MONTHLY CASH DIVIDEND TO $0.2205 PER SHARE FROM $0.22 PER SHARE.

I own 38 shares this will add $0.22 cents a year. Every dollar counts and we are counting this also.

Second raise goes to Microsoft. Lots of speculation as to how big this one was. Most were expecting a bigger increase, some were expecting a special dividend even though they said it was not going to do that. but the did raise it. Tuesday, the MSFT company’s board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of 46 cents a share, up from 42 cents, for an increase of 9.5%.

Not bad but not the greatest and i will take it as it adds to my  growing

This is a 9.5% increase. I own 60 shares this will add $9.60. Every dollar counts and we are counting this also.

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.

I have had larger increase with less shares but this one is one of the biggest in terms of dollar wise i have ever had hopefully a i can get a few other companies up like this, LOL.

I own 149 shares of Altria so this gives me an increase of $14.90 per quarter or $59.60 per year. when you add the earlier increase in it comes out to an astounding $78.57 a year raise

 

This is a 14% increase. I own 149 shares this will add $59.60. Every dollar counts and we are counting this also.

Dividend increase #DUK

Another Dividend increase was given to me last week. What did i do? really nothing I just trusted them with my money a few years ago and they reward me with an increase once a year.

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Duke Energy today declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of $0.9275 per share, an increase of $0.0375 per share, or 4.2 percent.

The dividend is payable on Sept. 17, 2018, to shareholders of record at the close of business Aug. 17, 2018.

“For 92 consecutive years, the dividend has played an important role in delivering value to our shareholders,” said Lynn Good, chairman, president and CEO. “This increase reflects continued confidence in our ability to produce strong financial results as we execute our long-term strategy.”

Anytime a long term strategy includes dividend increases I am happy very happy.

2018 buy number 5 and dividend hike XOM

image Yes the big double a buy and dividend hike on the same day i knew  the hike was getting close but not sure when it would happen.

When my mom gave me her Morgan Stanley  account, it came with $2,000 dollars in  cash wich earns a paltry bit of interest. of course i missed the episode a few weeks ago where it dropped to $73. something. It may go up more it may drop more im not really trying to time the market but when i looked this morning and seen that XOM was $78.05 I had to pull that trigger.

A little about XOM.

Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) is the largest of the vertically integrated oil majors, as well as the largest publicly-traded corporation in the world by revenue. It was created on November 30, 1999, by the merger of Exxon and Mobil. The company has several divisions and hundreds of affiliates, including Exxon Mobil, Exxon, Esso, and Mobil.

The firm generates the majority of its income from liquid and natural gas sales, with earnings of $19.7 billion in 2017. The geographical diversity of Exxon Mobil’s exploration and production (E&P) activities make it less vulnerable to the regional production uncertainties that plague the industry. The company is also an international leader in the downstream refining industry with over 5,000 owned/leased retail stations and 4.9 million barrels per day of refining capacity at the end of 2017.

CVX dividend hike

image who loves dividend hikes? Well me for one. no matter how big or how small. This one while a nice one was also small as I have a small amount of shares.
