A new dividend increase for my Vrijheid Fonds by Microsoft.
Yesterday Microsoft (MSFT) announced a 9.5% increase in its quarterly. The dividend is raised from $0.42 to $0.46. The dividend pay date is December 13, 2018 to shareholders of record on November 15, 2018 (ex dividend November 14, 2018).
The new dividend amount represents an annualized dividend amount of $1.68 per share, up from $1.56. The dividend yield on current price is 2.23%.
My Vrijheid Fonds consist of 32 shares of Microsoft, so my annual dividends will increase by € 3.72 ($ 4.35). For 2018 my dividends will increase by € 0.94 ($ 1.10) after taxes.
My projected annual total amount from my shares of MSFT will be € 39 (€ 46) after taxes.
This is the 22nddividend increase in 2018 for my Vrijheid Fonds. I’m happy! 🙂
