Here's What We Like About CRH's (LON:CRH) Upcoming Dividend

Article preview image

CRH plc (LON:CRH) is about to trade ex-dividend in the next three days. The ex-dividend date occurs one day before the record date which is the day on which shareholders need to be on the company's books in order to receive a dividend. The ex-dividend date is an important date to be aware of as any purchase of the stock made on or after this date might mean a late settlement that doesn't show on the record date. Meaning, you will need to purchase CRH's shares before the 16th of March to receive the dividend, which will be paid on the 4th of May.

The company's next dividend payment will be US$1.03 per share. Last year, in total, the company distributed US$1.27 to shareholders. Last year's total dividend payments show that CRH has a trailing yield of 2.5% on the current share price of £42.35. Dividends are a major contributor to investment returns for long term holders, but only if the dividend continues to be paid. So we need to check whether the dividend payments are covered, and if earnings are growing.
