That amount matches each of the firm's previous three declared payouts, the most recent of which is to be dispensed on July 31. Prior to that, Stryker handed out $0.2125 per share.
The firm is a habitual dividend payer. Since January 2010, it has raised its payout at the beginning of every year, lifting it from $0.10 per share to the current level.
The just-declared dividend annualizes to $1.06 per share. That yields 1.5% at Stryker's most recent closing stock price of $70.87.
