Dividend Increase – Gilead Sciences (GILD)

Yesterday the board of directors of Gilead Sciences announced a dividend increase of from $ 0.52 to $ 0.57 per share that’s payable March 29, 2018 to holders of record March 16, 2018. This represents a 9.62% increase to regular quarterly dividends.  

With current price $ 80.38 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 2.84%. 

Since I own 35 shares of GILD, this will increase my yearly net dividends by $ 5.22.

That increase rises my YOC to 2.97
