Vulcan’s dividend yield

Vulcan Materials’ (VMC) 100% dividend-per-share growth in 2016 has been followed by 25% growth in 2017. Its dividend yield curve has sloped upward due to growth in its dividend per share and a sharp drop in its stock price growth. Its stock price has risen 1% YTD (year-to-date), compared with 32% in 2016. The company, like the overall industry, is eager to take part in Donald Trump’s trillion-dollar infrastructure plans.
