Thursday, December 9th the Board of Directors of Edison International (NYSE) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 0.66 to $ 0.70 per share that’s payable January 31, 2022 to holders of record December 31, 2021. This represents a 5.66% increase over the last quarterly dividend.


“I’m pleased that Edison International has increased its dividend for the 18th consecutive year. The approval of this 5.66% increase reflects the board and management’s continued confidence in the company’s 5 to 7% long-term EPS growth target,” said Pedro J. Pizarro, president and CEO of Edison International.


With current price $ 66.88 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 4.19%.

The timing and amount of the increase was in line with my expectations.


This is the second dividend increase I received from Edison since initiating a position June 2021.


This increase raises my YOC to 4.85%.
