Halliburton (HAL -2.7%) shares move lower, along with most energy issues today, despite a 39% hike in the quarterly dividend to $0.125/share. HAL says it plans to distribute total annual dividends of at least 15%-20% of its net income, "nicely above the range of the preceding two years and generally above the historical range," and a potential ~35% dividend hike next year, Simmons analysts say.
