WWE Keeps Dividend Steady

World Wrestling Entertainment has elected to maintain its dividend. The company declared a quarterly distribution of $0.12 per share of both its class A and B common stock, to be paid on Sept. 25 to shareholders of record as of Sept. 13. That amount matches each of the company's previous distributions stretching back to June 2011. Before that, it paid out considerably more at $0.36 per share.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $0.48 per share. That yields 4.3% at WWE's most recent closing stock price of $11.16.

The company is scheduled to release its Q2 results at 11 a.m. Eastern time on Aug. 1.
