Pier 1 Imports Declares Dividend

Pier 1 Imports is continuing to export some of its money in the form of shareholder payouts. The company has declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.05 per share, to be paid on Aug. 7 to shareholders of record as of July 24. That amount matches both of the company's previous two distributions, the most recent of which was paid in early May. Before that, Pier 1 Imports was less generous by a cent, handing out $0.04 per share.

The company reinstated dividend payments last year following a hiatus of more than five years.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $0.20 per share. That yields 0.9% at Pier 1 Imports' most recent closing stock price of $23.15.
