Dividend Increase – The Coca-Cola Company (KO)

Yesterday the Board of Directors of The Coca-Cola Company announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.33 to $0.35 per share that’s payable April 1, 2016 to holders of record March 15, 2015. This represents a 6.06% increase to regular quarterly dividends and this is the 54th consecutive year that KO has increased its dividend per share. With current price $43.61 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 3.21%. 

Since I own 150 shares, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $8.94.

That increase rises my YOC to 3.74%.

  1. I was happy to get another raise from KO to go along with my 7% raise from Pepsi! Both great companies and long term holds.

  2. This is the perfect example of compounding and what means to own the best company in the world for such a long time. Congratz!
