The quarterly dividend for CCL stock holders has been raised to $.50 from $.45 starting this quarter.

So besides OBC on Princess (and other CCL brands), more money from dividends.

Fingers crossed. It’s been pretty volatile for the past few months and has dropped a reasonable amount. Good news about the dividend though.

Great news about the dividend. I really have fun using a spreadsheet to log in every dividend and every on-board-credit that goes with the stock --along with the stock price sometimes going up as well. Even with the recent down swing, it is still doing better than my savings account!

We bought the 100 shares in 2009 for about $26 per share. With dividends reinvested, stock appreciation and the OBC we are up to about $15,000. So yes it has been a great investment for us.

Fallen more in the UK as the £ has risen against the $. On the other hand get more $ for my £ when going to the USA later. Swings and roundabouts.

It's so funny, back when we bought our 100, Canadian and US were at par, it was $35 / share and $0.25 / share dividend, and our financial advisor thought it was not a good idea.

Fast forward to last Friday and our meeting to "Go Over" our investments, 100 shares now worth ~$8,400 Canadian, earning $200.00 US (or $260 Canadian) / year, and I just got our $250 (US) credit for our December trip. Our Advisor just says "Yup it's good, you were right on that one"

Going to have to look into that re-investment thing.

What may be more significant is the gigabuck authorization for share buybacks.

Surely pleased with the increase in the dividend, but also I'm of the opinion that the share buyback is quite significant.

CCL is a well run Company. I have owned it since it shortly after it became a public company and am surely glad that I have done so.

Yippee for higher dividends!

I bought at $25/share and have reaped a bundle with reinvested dividends, OBC and stock rising in value!! I'm at almost 200 shares now and loving it.

One of the benefits of buying stocks/mutual funds during a recession when you get a great low price!

Have to admit, I'm of kinda mixed thoughts on the rising dividends for CCL. On the one hand, it's definitely made my shares of CCL that we purchased around $31 a pretty reasonable choice. But the non-shareholder part of me would rather see some of this money they're paying out to shareholders be used instead to roll back some of the cost-cutting measures that you see on the ships.

I don't think there is much hope of that.
