Dividend Increase #61 of 2021 - Philip Morris International Inc. (PM)



Wednesday, September 15th the Board of Philip Morris International Inc. (PM) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 1.20 to $ 1.25 per share that’s payable October 14, 2021 to holders of record September 29, 2021. This represents a 4.17% increase over the last quarterly dividend.


This is the 14th consecutive year PM’s Board has approved a quarterly dividend increase.


With current price $ 102.12 (today's open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 4.90%.


Philip Morris is a Dividend Contenders with a 14 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 2.6, 4.0, 3.2 and 7.1 (Dividend Champions.xls)



Since I own 85 shares of PM, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $ 12.67.


This increase was in line with my expectations.


This is the eighth dividend increase I've received from Philip Morris since initiating a position January 2014. During this period, the quarterly dividend has risen sufficiently from $ 0.94 to $ 1.25, or 33 percent.


This increase raises my YOC to 5.97%.
