Insurance Company Raises Dividend

No, not Chubb: Cincinnati Financial. It's kept its spot in the Dividend Aristocrats list by raising its quarterly dividend 0.5 cents to 39.5 cents.

Interestingly, the stock yields more than Chubb: 6.38% versis Chubb's 2.93%. Having not been the beneficiary of a recent earnings release with a positive surprise, Cincinnati's been trundling along in a range for almost a month. Perhaps it's because Cincinnati's 10-year return on equity has been in the single digits, while Chubb's is confortably in the double digits.

As a point of thought: Cincinnati's free cash flow per share, as measured by GuruFocus, has been at least double its dividend disbursements for the last ten years. That span includes disaster-laden years 2001 and 2005, neither of which saw Cincinnati pushed into a loss. At a first glance, the dividend looks safe.


  1. Hi ,

    It’s really good to know about the home packagers and movers in detail. Looks really interesting!!!

    The entire process will be a lot easier if you can find a reliable Cincinnati movers company, though this might not always be as easy as it seems. It’s not just a matter of picking up the phone book and searching under “moving companies”. Moving companies can be quite diverse in the services they provide. Some companies may only work locally while others are national or even global. So the type of move you are planning and even what you need to move will determine the type of Cincinnati moving company you’ll need to hire.


  2. I have never been a big fan of financial services companies.
