Intel Ups Net Payout Yield to Attractive Level

Yesterday, Intel (INTC) upped its dividend to 72.48 cents (ok, what's up with the fractional cents?). This brings the dividend yield up to a very respectable 3.4%.


Yet the dividend alone wouldn't make Intel a Net Payout Yield favorite. INTC also announced a $10B increase in the share repurchase plan, which increases the overall outstanding buyback to a whopping $14.2B.
