Cash and stock dividends have been a long-standing tradition. Cash dividends are set for discussion each calendar quarter at the Board of Directors Meeting; and if approved, are paid the following month. Stock dividends have been set for discussion each December at the Board of Directors Meeting; and if approved, are usually paid in January or February. Cash and stock dividends are at the discretion of the Board of Directors and should never be assumed to be an automatic benefit of being a shareholder.
On occasion shareholders and/or their tax advisors need a stock dividend history in order to calculate capital gains taxes. Shareholders Services can provide this information. A dividend history is available on this website.
