Dividend Increase #56 of 2021 - Main Street Capital Corporation (MAIN)



Tuesday, August 3rd the Board of Directors of Main Street Capital Corporation (MAIN) announced a monthly dividend increase of from $ 0.205 to $ 0.21 per share. First raised dividend is payable October 15, 2021 to holders of record September 29, 2021. This represents a 2.44% increase over the prior monthly dividend.


With current price $ 41.61 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 6.06%.


MAIN is a Dividend Contenders with a 10 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 1.9, 3.2, 3.2 and 5.1 (Dividend Champions.xls)



Since I own 130 shares of MAIN, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $ 5.81.


This increase came as a surprise to me. I couldn’t wait for it because the previous monthly dividend increase was in May 2019.


This is the second dividend increase I've received from Main Street Capital Corporation since initiating a position in November 2018. During this period, the quarterly dividend has risen poorly from $ 0.195 to $ 0.21, or 7.69 percent.


This increase raises my YOC to 6.60%.
