Annaly Ups Dividend, Pushing Yield Over 14

21 Jun

Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NLY) declared a quarterly dividend of $0.65 per share after today’s closing bell, bumping its payout by 4.8%. This is the first dividend hike in a year from the agency mortgage REIT, which had reduced its payout each of the previous two quarters.

Annaly’s fat payout generally fluctuates from quarter to quarter. The company has paid anywhere from $0.55 to $0.75 per share in each of the last 12 quarters.

Shares of NLY closed Monday’s session trading at $18.50 — just a nickel off their 52-week high — where they now carry a 14.05% dividend yield.
