Dividend increase Unilever NV (UNA.AS) – 2018

A dividend increase by Unilever

This week Unilever announced an 8% increase in its quarterly dividend. The dividend is raised from €0.3585 to €0.3872. The dividend pay date is June 6, 2018 to shareholders of record on May 4, 2018 (ex dividend May 3, 2018).





CEO Paul Polman:

“For the full year, we continue to expect underlying sales growth in the 3%–5% range and an improvement in underlying operating margin and cash flow that keep us on track for our 2020 goals. We intend to start a share buy-back programme of up to €6 billion in May to return the expected after-tax proceeds from the spreads disposal. We are raising the dividend by 8%, reflecting confidence in our outlook.”


Vrijheid Fonds

The new dividend amount represents an annualized dividend amount of €1.5488 per share, up from €1.4340. The dividend yield on current price is 3.41%.




My Vrijheid Fonds consist of 246 shares of Unilever, so in 2018 my passive income will increase by €18 (after taxes).

My projected annual total amount from my shares of UNA.AS will be €318.45 after taxes.

    They have been on my watch list since forever and never found a good entry point. I missed the dip at 43 euro since I didn’t have any capital. Its currently heading back to that level so I hope to pull the trigger soon.

    What would be a good entry price for you?

      My holding period for these kind of stocks are “forever”, so the entry price isn’t very important 😀
      However I will be happy with a price around €40

        Same here, but the lowest has been 43. And with the good news of the recent days it’s going north of 46. In any case maybe I’m just trying to time the market and I should be be doing that.

      Thanks for your suggestions!
      I will certainly look at these stock. What I certainly will take into account is the tax refund (dividend tax) from the foreign countries
