Automatic Data Processing  will dole out the latest in a long string of shareholder payouts. The company has declared a fresh quarterly dividend of $0.435 per share, to be paid on October 1 to shareholders of record as of September 13. That amount matches each of the firm's preceding three distributions, the most recent of which was paid at the beginning of July. Prior to that, ADP handed out marginally less at $0.395 per share.

The firm is a very steady and consistent dividend payer. It has also raised its disbursement every year starting in 1976.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $1.74 per share. That yields 2.4% at ADP's most recent closing stock price of $72.24.
