Dividend Increase – TELUS Corporation (TSE:T)


On Friday, November 6 the Board of Directors of TELUS Corporation announced a quarterly dividend increase of from CA$ 0.29125 to CA$ 0.3112 per share that’s payable January 4, 2021 to holders of record December 11, 2020. This represents a 6.85% increase over last quarterly dividend and is the nineteenth dividend increase since TELUS announced its original multi-year dividend growth program in May 2011.


With current price CA$ 24.03 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 5.18%.


TELUS is a member of Canadian Dividend All Star List with a 16 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 7.3, 7.0, 8.2 and 9.0 (Canadian Dividend All-Star List)



Since I own 380 shares of TELUS, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by CA$ 22.59.


This increase raises my YOC to 5.18%.



Summary of 2020 Dividend Increases / Cuts



As you can see, some large dividend cuts will have the effect that full-year growth will be negative. I also believe that there will come more cuts during this year.
