Cogent Communications Raises Dividend 8%

It won't require any convincing arguments for investors in Cogent Communications  (NASDAQ: CCOI  )  to accept the new dividend payment the multinational Tier 1 ISP will pay for the second quarter of 2013.

Today it announced a new distribution of $0.13 per share to be handed out on June 18 to shareholders of record as of May 31, representing an 8.3% increase from its first quarter payout of $0.12 per share paid on March 15.
