Pay Raises Dividend Style!

The companies I own have been increasing their dividend this past month. Here are just a few of them:

Eaton Vance gave me a very nice pay raise of 8.57%. The annual dividend per share went from 1.4 to 1.52.

Westrock- 1.82 to 1.86 for an increase of 2.2%

Six Flags-3.28 to 3.32 annual per share owned. This is only a penny per quarter but I didn’t expect to see a raise from Six Flags. So it looks like a 1.21% annual increase here.

Medical Properties Trust in August raised its dividend from 1.00 to 1.04 per share annually. This is an increase of 4%. This was less than shareholders expected given what I’ve read.

As you can see, the company with the lowest dividend yield raised theirs the most. The company with the highest yield, Six Flags, raised its dividend the least amount. Eaton Vance is a DIVIDEND ARISTOCRAT with over 30 years of increasing its dividend, seriously impressive.

As usual, here is my corresponding youtube video to go with this post!
