Dividend Increase - Philip Morris International Inc. (PM)



Wednesday, September 14th the Board of Directors of Philip Morris International Inc. (PM) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 1.25 to $ 1.27 per share that’s payable October 12, 2022 to holders of record September 28, 2022. This represents a 1.60% increase over the last quarterly dividend.


With current price $ 93.83 (today's open), this raise brings their dividend yield to 5.41%.



Philip Morris is a Dividend Contenders with a 15 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 3.0, 3.1, 3.4 and 6.1 (Dividend Champions.xls)



Since I own 85 shares of PM, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $ 5.07.


The increase was lower than I expected, because I was waiting for it to be around 3%, but an increase is always an increase.


This is the ninth dividend increase I've received from Philip Morris since initiating a position January 2014. During this period, the quarterly dividend has risen by a modest 35% from $0.94 to $1.27.


This increase raises my YOC to 6.07%.
