Investors in Macy’s stock will be getting a dividend of 15.75 cents per share, which is a 5% increase from the prior dividend. That dividend is payable on April 1, 2022, to shareholders on record as of March 15, 2022.

What Is the Macy’s Stock Dividend News?

It’s worth noting that this dividend comes after the company reintroduced quarterly dividends in 2021. Bringing back dividends was already a boon to investors and increasing it is another high note for holders of M stock.

That quarterly dividend for M shareholders was announced during the company’s most recent earnings report. That was another blessing to Macy’s investors with its adjusted earnings per share of $2.45 and revenue of $8.67 billion. Both of those surpassed Wall Street’s estimates of $1.99 per share on revenue of $8.47 billion.

Adrian Mitchell, CFO of Macy’s said the following in the Q4 2021 earnings report.

“We generated $2.3 billion in free cash flow this year – a significant amount that allowed us to return capital to shareholders through our measured capital allocation plan while meaningfully improving the health of our balance sheet. The strength of our financial position offers the flexibility in 2022 to continue investing in growth opportunities, navigate the dynamic macro environment with agility, and further deliver on our commitment to enhance shareholder value.”
