CME Special Dividend 2020 and History

CME has announced their special dividend/annual variable dividend for 2020 in the amount of $2.50 per share.  The 2020 special dividend is $0.75 higher than 2019.  This marks the 7th straight year of having a special dividend and 10 special dividends in the 13 years the company started paying special dividends.  Pretty good stuff.  The current yield on CME (not factoring in the special dividend) is 1.64% based on the 2/12 closing price of $207.64.  If we factor in the special dividend and the regular quarterly dividend of $0.85, we suddenly have a dividend yield of 2.84%.  Today is just about the special dividend history.

Lets take a look at the special dividend history:

Remember, the special/variable dividend is an added bonus to the stock.  However, we can see the special dividend has been quite regular over 13 years.  This company is a dividend machine.

CME vs S&P500

So dividends are nice and all, as they provide a way for an early retiree with cash flows to live off, but how does the stock compare vs the S&P500 for the all important capital appreciation.

If I go back to when CME IPO’d, we see it has a miraculous run, followed by a crash with the markets in ’08, and then it was like nothing happened.  So yeah, lots of growth here.  The interesting thing too, they have new derivatives coming out that can be traded quite frequently, so this leads to additional streams of revenue to profit from.

Key Stats

Market Cap: $73.81 Billion

Dividend Yield: 1.64% (without special dividend)

Beta: 0.08

Profit Margin: 40.99%

Payout Ratio: 51.85%

Total Cash: $1.29 Billion

Total Debt: $4.53 Billion

I absolutely love this stock. Great margins, a specialized exchange, room for the dividend to grow, and a very shareholder friendly dividend policy.  I’ve said it before, I still think a buyout of CBOE would make sense for CME to do.


With that said, I like CME as a long term holding.  It offers a growing marking in specialty regulated derivatives, compared to slow to low growth of your traditional stock exchanges.
