    $MDT needs to increase dividend to $.30+ to maintain pace of stock price. No longer a great dividend stock in my eyes at a 2% yield.

    • Dividend Growth Machine: A company should make dividend decisions based on operating results, not on stock price movements.

    • The Aristos: I wasn't stating that it should for it's purposes. Stating that it 'needs' to do this for me to consider it for my portfolio.

    • Dividend Growth Machine: Understood. I'm guessing they'll do a 7.7% increase to $0.28 per share, which would be satisfactory for me (I am long MDT).

    • The Aristos: Was long from early 2012. Sold in April. Probably over-thinking it yet put that money in more undervalued names.
