Just in case you missed it, Unilever (UL) announced 04/14 a dividend increase of 6% to €0.3201 per share. It’s about a $0.02 increase from previous. Just like clockwork, Unilever keeps increasing it’s dividend. It may not get the attention it deserves because its dividend is declared in Euros and currency conversion to U.S. dollars can make the dividend seem like it fluctuates. However, I do give companies credit for increasing their dividend in their own currency. The cash dividend is payable on June 1st to shareholders of record as of April 29th.
For U.S. Invetsors, I recommend UL, as no taxes are withheld in the U.K. UN shares are taxed in the Netherlands at a rate of 15%.
Below is a look at their recent dividend history:
Since I own 82.76 shares, this will increase my yearly income by $6.62.
