WEC Energy plans to increase dividend 5.1%

WEC Energy is planning to raise the quarterly dividend on the company's common stock to 52c per share in 1Q17. This would represent an increase of 2.5% per share or 5.1% over the current quarterly rate. The directors expect to declare the new dividend at their regularly scheduled meeting in January. The dividend, which would be equivalent to an annual rate of $2.08 per share, is expected to be payable March 1, 2017, to stockholders of record on Feb. 14, 2017. Earnings in 2017 are expected to be in a range of $3.06-$3.12 per share. This is consistent with the company objective to grow earnings per share at a 5%-7% compound annual growth rate off a 2015 base of $2.72.
