IBM (IBM +0.8%) is raising its quarterly dividend by $0.10/share, or 12%, to $0.95/share, and increasing its buyback authorization by $5B to $11.2B. Big Blue's yield is now at 1.9%, and its buyback authorization is now good for repurchasing 5.1% of shares at current levels. IBM carried out $2.6B in buybacks in Q1 - its EPS miss would've been much worse without them. The company notes it has raised its dividend 18 years in a row and lowered its share count by a third since 2000, and says it expects to request another authorization at its Oct. board meeting. (PR)
