Dividend Increase – AT&T Inc. (T)

Yesterday AT&T Inc. announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.47 to $0.48 per share that’s payable February 1, 2016 to holders of record January 8, 2016. This represents a 2.1% increase to regular quarterly dividends. With current price $33.60 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 5.71%. 

Since I own 310 shares this will increase my yearly net dividends by $9.24.

That increase rises my YOC to 5.42%

  1. Hallo Hawk,
    Do you see T as a buy at the moment (as a EUR investor)?
    I'm holding 160 shares and want to buy more. But my opinion is to wait for a better EUR/USD ratio or a lower stock price. Both not happening -> next.
    Any thoughts?

    1. Hi TS
      I think that T is currently fairly valued and I could think of adding it, if it wouldn't be already so large weight in my portfolio. However, the dividend of T will be likely to grow in the same "excellent" rate also in the future. Changes in foreign exchange rates are difficult to predict, itself, however, I believe the EUR to weaken against the USD in the future.

      Thanks for stopping by!
