Tuesday, February 21st the Board of Directors of The Home Depot, Inc. (HD) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $1.90 to $2.09 per share that’s payable March 23, 2023 to holders of record March 9, 2023. This represents a 10.0% increase over the last quarter dividend. This is the 144th consecutive quarter the Company has paid a cash dividend.

With current price $291.49 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 2.87%.

Since I own 15 shares of HD, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $8.49.

This increase was in line with my expectations and I welcome this announcement.

This is the fourth dividend increase I've received from Home Depot since initiating a position in March 2019. During this period, the quarterly dividend has increased nicely from $1.36 to $2.09 or 53.7 percent.

This increase raises my YOC to 4.53%.
