    Check your title. The dividend was increased 13.2 percent, not 1 percent. Also, this dividend increase was announced on September 19th, 2013.

    Thanks for catching that. I have a "three" key problem on my keyboard that doesn't always work. I caught it in the body of the article but obviously not in the title. And I did mention it was announced last month.

    Thanks for reading and holding my feet to the fire!
