Today McDonald's announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.89 to $0.94 per share that’s payable December 15, 2016 to holders of record December 1, 2016. This represents a 5.62% increase to regular quarterly dividends.
McDonald's has raised its dividend each and every year since paying its first dividend in 1976. With current price $115.20 (today's open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 3.26%.
Since I own 20 shares this will increase my yearly net dividends by $2.98.
