Today the Board of Directors of Bank of Nova Scotia announced a quarterly dividend increase of from CA$0.66 to CA$0.68 per share that’s payable April 28, 2015 to holders of record April 7, 2015. This represents a 6.25 % increase over the second quarter 2014 dividend of CA$0.64 per share and a 3.03 % increase over for the first quarter 2015 of CA$0.66 per share. With current price CA$66.70 (today's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 4.08%.
Since I own 100 shares, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by CA$5.96.
That increase rises my YOC to 4.32%.
