Analyzing Corning’s Dividend Yield

Corning’s dividend yield

Corning’s (GLW) 50% dividend per share growth in 2016 has been followed by 15% growth in 2017, and its stock price has risen, explaining the recent downward slope in its dividend yield curve. Its stock price has risen 30.5% YTD (year-to-date), compared with 33% growth in 2016, thanks to this year’s tech rally. In July 2017, Corning announced a $500 billion investment in an innovative pharmaceutical glass packaging initiative, a collaborative effort with Merck and Pfizer that has the potential to create 1,000 jobs.
