Marketing and Communications Giant Omnicom Group Inc. Boosts Quarterly Dividend.

Marketing and communications giant Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC) boosted its quarterly dividend 9% or 5 cents to 60 cents per share.

While OMC and other such stocks have taken a beating recently, I still think the Company is an attractive hold and I am taking the 15% drop in price since I first made  mention of the stock on November 30th 2016 in stride. As at the close of business on October 16th, OMC is changing hands for less than 15 times future earnings.

Penske Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE: PAG) today announced that it is increasing its quarterly dividend to 33c per share from 32c per share. This equates to a 3% qoq increase.

While “small” when considered in isolation, the most recent quarterly dividend increase is actually the Company’s 26th such consecutive quarterly dividend bump.

See here for why I believe PAG is a solid long-term hold for dividend investors:
