"Our board of directors has approved a 4% increase in our quarterly common stock cash dividend to $1.12 per share, reflecting confidence in the underlying strength of our business," commented Andrew P. Power, Chief Financial Officer.  "This marks the 15th consecutive year we have grown our dividend, and we are pleased to be among a select group of REITs to have raised the dividend each and every year since our initial public offering in 2004."

With current price $ 129.22 (Thursday's open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 3.47%.
