Factoid of the Day Friday, January 30, 2015
FactSet estimates that the dividend payout from the S&P 500 will increase by 7.7% in 2015, as fewer companies initiate new dividends and many firms redirect cash into much-neglected capital spending, according to Kiplinger. Dividend increases had been growing at a double-digit pace in recent years. Currently, 423 companies in the S&P 500 distribute a dividend. FactSet estimates that financial firms will raise payouts an average of 13.2% in 2015, the most of any sector, followed by an 8.6% hike from industrial companies.
