I'm a bit tardy in noting:
Altria (NYSE:MO) declares $0.86/share quarterly dividend, a 2.4% increase from prior dividend of $0.84.
Forward yield 8.17%
Payable Oct. 9; for shareholders of record Sept. 15; ex-div Sept. 14.
J.M. Smucker (SJM) raised their dividend from .88 to .90 share. Not much, but in these times will take everything I can get!
Am I the only one that has Illinois Tool (ITW) stock? Raised dividend from $1.07 to $1.14.
