Allegheny Tech Keeps Dividend Steady

Allegheny Technologies isn't yet veering from its dividend policy of the past few years. The company has declared a new distribution of $0.18 per share of its common stock, to be handed out on June 19 to shareholders of record as of May 22. That amount matches each of the company's preceding quarterly payouts stretching back to December 2007. Prior to that, Allegheny Tech paid $0.13.

The news of the latest distribution comes slightly over a week after the firm announced Q1 results revealing a year-over-year increase in sales, but a drop in net income.

The current dividend annualizes to $0.72 per share, which yields 2.7% at Allegheny Tech's most recent closing stock price of $26.19.
