I’m back with another raise to share with you. On February 25th the Board of Directors at Home Depot announced they were raising the dividend 10.3%. This marks the 11th straight year the company rewarded shareholders with a raise.
Home Depot will now pay a quarterly dividend of $1.50 per share. Just think the company is paying shareholders $6 per share just to hold the stock, I like that idea quite a bit.
I currently have 12 shares of the company and this raise will increase my quarterly income by $1.68 and my annual income by $6.72
