Verizon raises dividend 3.8%---New yield is 4.42%

Today Verizon announced that it is raising its quarterly dividend from $.53 to $.55 per share.  This is an increase of 3.8% and the yield is now 4.42%.  Since I own 106.87 shares, this will increase my yearly dividends by $8.55.

  2. Great news!! We literally became shareholders this past month and already we are getting a raise. Definitely not going to complain about that. :)

    Cheers to more dividends than anticipated! AFFJ

    1. AFFJ,

      A 3.8% raise from a "stuffy" telecom is a good thing in my book.
