  • Looking forward to the next dividend hike, but am pleased to take the .45 on Nov. 1. Upped position last Friday at $33.75. Most acquired in the mid to high 20s.

  • They might be having such a high yield in order to attract investors because maybe its not as solid company as they want us to believe?

  • I see many communication companies with high dividends. I think T is slightly higher because the stock price is depressed.

  • Matthew,

     

    Look at the dividend history. The annual increase typically comes in December. Why would they raise the div a quarter early?
