In case you missed it, on May 17, JP Morgan increased its quarterly dividend to $0.48 from $0.44, or 9.1%.
I purchased shares of JPM during the London Whale incident in 2012. My initial purchase in May was for 100 shares @$36.65. I then bought 100 more in June @$32.05. My average dividend yield at the time was $1.20 / $34.35 = 3.49%.
Since this time, the yearly dividend has been bumped up from $1.20, to $1.52, to $1.60, to $1.76, and lately to $1.92.
In 4 years, my dividends have risen from $240 to $384, which gives me a YOC of 5.59%. I wish all my investments were as successful!
On another note, I sold my 200 shares of Baxalta this week. If I did the math right, my cost basis was $6,388.00 and I sold them for $8,683.86. The dividend was pretty shitty but the capital gain of 35% was fantastic.
