This is why we invest in the stocks we invest in. Increasing dividend payments. Microsoft is one of our main holdings, and we capitalized on weakness in the stock over various times in 2011 to buy the shares at the $24/share level. With the new dividend yield, we’ve locked in a yield of 3.3% based on the cash outlay. This increasing dividend payment plus the appreciation in share price we expect makes this a big winner for us with very, very low risk.
