Every Little Bit Helps: PAG Boosts Quarterly Dividend to 33c Per Share.

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:
