Wednesday, January 31st the Board of Directors of Eversource Energy (ES) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.675 to $0.715 per share that’s payable March 29, 2024 to holders of record March 5, 2024. This represents a 5.93% increase over the last quarterly dividend.

With current price $55.20 (Friday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 5.18%.

Since I own 20 shares of ES, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $2.38.

The increase met my expectations.

This is the first dividend increase I've received from Eversource Energy since initiating a position in January 2024.

This increase raises my yield on cost to 5.02%.
