Dividend Increase – WFC

ID-100130817-300x200 Dividend Increase - WFCThis is the first company to announce a dividend increase for this month in my portfolio.

Wells Fargo & Co (WFC) just declared $0.39 quarterly dividend. This is an increase of 2.63% from $0.38.

I own 73 shares, so this will increase my annual dividend income by $2.92 to $3,773.36

I updated both my Passive Income page as well as my Portfolio page to reflect the changes.

My Thoughts:

I am very happy with my holding of WFC and do not plan to add more shares anytime soon unless there is a big drop in price as WFC is full position currently. I have been doing very well with this holding as I am up 13.29% plus dividend. 

Last year they increased it by 1.3% and the year before 7.1%. This year was a little better than last year, but it is still lower than inflation. WFC current dividend payout is at 38% right now and I think they will start increasing the dividend in the middle single digit soon.

I find the stock to be fair to slight undervalued and I would recommend a BUY. 

I won’t be “Backing up the truck” with WFC at this level, but opening a position or just adding a few more shares here would be fine in the long term.

Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to follow me:

  1. I’ll take that increase. It may be a token amount but it’s better than staying flat or reducing their dividend. I know MAT shareholders aren’t happy about the recent cut. It’s all about staying diversified and absorbing those inevitable cuts that happens to all of us.
