Hi all,

TMFRichDad has said that they raised dividend payout every quarter. Now, if they keep dividend payout total the same, dividend per share will go up as a virtue of share count going down.

Just to correct the record, I was looking at 10year historical expenditures on dividends for MMM (from the cash flow statement available at M*). They were **annual** payouts. They have gone up every year.

So, provided that trend continues coupled with a reduction in share count over the next two years, the dividend per share could see nice growth.
