Dividend Increase – Altria Group Inc. (MO)






Today Altria announces a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.48 to $0.52 per share that’s payable October 10, 2014 to holders of record September 15, 2014. This represents a 8.3% increase to regular quarterly dividends. This is the 48th dividend increase for Altria.

Altria is a Dividend Champions and has paid higher dividends consecutively for 44 years. With current price $42.60, this raise brings their dividend yield to 4.88%. 

Altria will remain in my portfolio and I’m currently holding it with no plans to accumulate more unless there is a big correction.

Since I own 175 shares this will increase my yearly net dividends by $20.86 . (~15.70€).

That increase rises my YOC to 6.18%
