Dividend Increase #3 of 2020


Howdy fellow investors! I’m here to share with you another dividend increase my portfolio received this month. After markets closed on January 28th Canadian National Railway (ticker: CNR) released their quarterly earnings, in that release the board of directors announced a 7% increase to the company’s dividend. The dividend increase was expected but I believe everyone was expecting the raise to be over 10%. I believe that trade tensions and and the strike that CN conductors had back in the fall of 2019 had a hand in this decision.

As a side note this is the second raise of the year I have received the other being Canadian Utilities that have been lower than last year. I might have to keep an eye on this and hope it isn’t a trend.

Ok back to CN I currently have 15 shares of the company and this raise is going to boost my quarterly income by $0.56 and annually by $2.24.

If you own Canadian National Railway congrats on the raise fellow shareholders.
