On May 3rd when the company reported it’s first quarter results it announced a special dividend of $0.40 per share to be paid on June 15th to shareholders of record on May 31st. Now I must admit that I was not expecting to get this announcement. I say that because if they were going to payout a special dividend i thought they would have announced it with their 2017 year earnings results when they announced a dividend increase back in March. As a shareholder I am happy to receive this extra income. This is the third year in a row that the company has paid out a special dividend back in 2016 it was $0.50 per share, in 2017 it was $0.65.
I currently own 227 shares so I will receive $90.80 in June which will help me set a new all time high in dividends received in a month.
If you own the stock I would like to say congrats on receiving the special dividend.
Thanks for reading my post everybody.
