Cloud storage and information technology services company EMC (EMC) announced today that it will both expand its existing share buyback program and initiate a dividend, based on confidence in its long term business strategy and prospects. Shares in the Hopkinton, Massachusetts based company jumped over 4% in early-day trading on the news.

EMC’s dividend of 10 cents per share on a quarterly basis (40 cents per share per year) will be paid on July 23 to shareholders of record on July 1, with an ex-dividend date of June 27. EMC’s dividend yield based on the payout stands at 1.6%.
