Dividend Increase - Unilever N.V.


Today the Board of Directors of Unilever announced a quarterly dividend increase of from 0.3201 to 0.3585 per share that’s payable June 7, 2017 to holders of record May  5, 2017. This represents a 11.99% increase to regular quarterly dividends. With current price 48.11 (today's open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 2.98%. 

Since I own 80 shares, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by 9.15.

That increase rises my YOC to 4.02%.

  1. UL continues to perform. A nice increase that I'm happy about with a healthy stock price, though I wish it was at $40 or below again so I could add some more shares :)

  2. Ah, why didn't I buy more when they were around 40? Well well, nice raise in any case.

  3. Is there any difference in buying the stock on the NYSE (I assume you buy the PLC version and not the NV?), or buying the stock directly on the Dutch Stock Exchange?

    1. Hi, Yes, there is a difference. (https://www.unilever.com/investor-relations/unilever-shares/about-shares/unilever-shares-the-basics/) The currency is a difference and in addition, PLC dividends are not subject to withholding tax. (UK tax)I bought from Amsterdam in currency €. (NV Version)

  5. So it is this from Amsterdam Unilever DRC, ISIN koodi NL0000009355? Do they held 15% taxes in advance from dividends?
