DJIA Companies Expected To Increase Dividends

Posted by D4L | Thursday, October 20, 2011 | | 0 comments »

The 30 stocks making up the Dow Jones Industrial Average are expected to increase their annual dividend payouts by an average of 11.8% over the third quarter of 2010 and by 1.1% over the second quarter of this year. According to the results of a third-quarter survey by Dow Jones Indexes, the component companies' $102.7 billion in expected distributions for the 12-month period beginning Oct. 1, 2011, represents 38% of all indicated annual dividends by American public companies.

David Krein, senior director of product development and analytics at Dow Jones Indexes, described the most recent report as “meaningful insight into the strategic outlook of bellwether U.S. corporations.” Nine of the 10 largest dividend distributions in the U.S. market — by total estimated payout — are Dow component companies.
