Blyth Declares Semi-Annual Dividend

Blyth Declares Semi-Annual Dividend

Blyth is electing to keep its dividend steady. The company has declared a semi-annual payout for the six-month period ended on June 30. This will be $0.10 per share paid on October 15 to shareholders of record as of October 1. That amount matches both of the firm's previous two distributions, the most recent of which was paid in April. Prior to that, Blyth handed out $0.15 per share, although this was in advance of a two-for-one stock split effected in June 2012.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $0.20 per share. That yields 1.8% at Blyth's most recent closing stock price of $11.02.
