CSX Raises Dividend and more
CSX reported a good quarter and decided to raise the dividend and announce a buyback. This holding has been a nice steady contributor both with price slowly moving higher along with a growing dividend. They are building back up from their 3 for 1 split a few years ago. I am happy to own a little bit, but it may be beneficial to look at adding to my position to enjoy more of this news.
From the press release: The CSX of Directors has approved a 13% increase in its quarterly dividend to 18 cents a share, along with a new $2 billion buyback. The new dividend will be paid June 15 to shareholders of record as of May 29.
