Dividend Increase – McDonald's Corp. (MCD)

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.

That increase rises my YOC to 3.98

  1. "I'm lovin' it!" Always happy to read about dividend raises from some of my holdings. Thanks for sharing. Seems like yesterday when MCD was in the $80s and everyone wrote them off for dead while CMG, PNRA and others were the 'darlings.'

    Similar to DivHut, I'm loving it as well! Great increase and also great sharebuy back program announced. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Where do you get info on dividend raises? can you create a watchlist somewhere and get notified when there is a raise?


    1. Hi, maybe it's possible to create some kind of list with news, but I got this to my email, cause I have signed up for email alerts for all companies that I have in my portfolio.
