Dividend Increase – Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)

Today the Board of Directors of Johnson & Johnson announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.84 to $0.90 per share that’s payable June 12, 2018 to holders of record May 29, 2018. This represents a 7.14% increase to regular quarterly dividends. With current price $126.62 (todays open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 2.84%. 

In recognition of our 2017 results, strong financial position and confidence in the future of Johnson & Johnson, the Board has voted to increase the quarterly dividend for the 56th consecutive year," said Alex Gorsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company.

Since I own 60 shares of JNJ, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $8.85.

That increase rises my YOC to 3.68%.
