Dividend Increase - The Coca-Cola Company (KO)


Thursday, February 16th the Board of Directors of The Coca-Cola Company (KO) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 0.44 to $ 0.46 per share that’s payable April 3, 2023 to holders of record March 17, 2023. This represents a 4.55% increase over the last quarter dividend. This was the company’s 61th consecutive annual dividend increase.

With current price $59.72 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 3.08%.

Coca-Cola is a Dividend Champions with a 61 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 4.8, 3.2, 3.5 and 5.6 (Dividend Champions.xls)

Since I own 150 shares of KO, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $8.94.

This increase was in line with my expectations.

This is the 10th dividend increase I've received from Coca-Cola since initiating a position in October 2013. During this period, the quarterly dividend has risen moderately from $0.28 to $0.46 or 64.3 percent.

This increase raises my YOC to 4.91%.
