Dividend Increase - Power Corporation of Canada (TSE:POW)


Thursday, March 16th the Board of Directors Power Corporation of Canada (TSE:POW) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from C$0.495 to C$0.525 per share that’s payable May 1, 2023 to holders of record March 31, 2023. This represents a 6.06% increase over the last quarter dividend.

With current price C$34.62 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 6.07%.

Power Corporation of Canada is a member of Canadian Dividend All Star List with a 9 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 7.8, 7.4, 7.0 and 5.5 (Canadian Dividend All-Star List)

Since I own 115 shares of POW, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $7.49.

This increase is in line with my expectations and I am happy to accept it.

This is the first dividend increase I've received from Power Corporation of Canada since initiating a position in March 2022.

This increase raises my YOC to 5.72%.
