Dividend Increase: Altria (MO)

8/21/2015  Altria (MO) announced an increase in their quarterly dividend of 8.7% to the new amount of $0.565 payable Oct 9 to shareholders of record Sept 15.  One year ago, MO increased their quarterly dividend to $0.52 per share.  The announcement of the increase was expected, however was a nice surprise of $0.015 higher than I projected.  MO maintains their shareholder friendly policy of an 80% payout ratio.  Earnings for the last four quarters have come in at the higher end of analyst expectations, with the most recent fiscal Q2 showing an earnings beat.  YOY earnings growth remains solid and I would expected for calendar year 2016 MO to announce an expected dividend increase of approximately $0.04 bringing their October 2016 dividend payment to $0.605.  Todays announcement represents 49 dividend increases in the past 46 years, putting it in exclusive company as a dividend aristocrat and continues to be one of the best run companies there can be.  Now that is BAMF Money.

Today’s announcement is a small ray of light in what is ultimately a shit day in the markets.

Look for an increase from PM in the upcoming weeks.  Current quarterly dividend is $1.00, looking for a bump up to $1.05.

  1. I have not checked in here for some time as I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

  2. Together with almost everything which appears to be developing throughout this area, your points of view tend to be rather exciting. Having said that, I beg your pardon, because I can not give credence to your whole idea, all be it stimulating none the less. It seems to everybody that your comments are not completely rationalized and in fact you are generally your self not really wholly convinced of the point. In any event I did appreciate examining it.

  3. That is the suitable blog for anyone who wants to seek out out about this topic. You notice a lot its nearly laborious to argue with you (not that I really would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just nice!
