    Sun Life Financial has increased its quarterly distribution to $0.435/share (previously $0.42). This represents a 3.6% increase.

    I read the Telus release here:
    http://about.telus.com/community/eng...t-quarter-2017

    I do not see how they claim a 7% increase in the dividend. They went from $0.48 to $0.4925. This is $0.0125 more, which is 2.6% of the $0.48 prior amount. A 7% increase would have gotten us an extra $0.0336 or $0.5136.

    EDIT: if you go back in their dividend history to the same Q last year, it was $0.44 and we have a 7% boost against that at this point. Seems fishy though since they already announced the intervening increases to various levels of fanfare.

    My guess is they're playing fast and loose with semantics a bit. The latest increase would be bring the total annual increase from this time last year to 7%. In June 2016 the dividend was $0.46 x 1.07 = $0.4926

    "On a positive note for shareholders, BMO increased its quarterly dividend by 2 cents to 90 cents a share, as several analysts had expected it would."

    BMO up'd their dividend 4.6% for the year, slow and steady.
