CME Group (NASDAQ: CME) is staying consistent for the moment in terms of shareholder payouts. The company has declared a dividend for its Q2 of $0.45 per share, to be paid on June 25 to shareholders of record as of June 10. That amount matches CME Group's previous distribution, which was paid at the end of March.
The firm has distributed much higher dividends in the past, although much of this is attributable to a five-for-one stock split it effected in the middle of last year.
The just-declared payout annualizes to $1.80 per share. That yields 2.8% at CME Group's most recent closing stock price of $64.13.
