The company matches its previous payout.

Another dividend is on tap for investors in American Water Works (AWK -0.35%). The company has declared its latest quarterly common stock distribution, which is to be $0.28 per share, paid on December 2 to shareholders of record as of November 15. That amount matches both of the firm's previous two payouts, the most recent of which was dispensed at the beginning of September. Prior to that, American Water paid $0.03 less, or $0.25 per share.

The firm has handed out a dividend since September 2008. It has steadily climbed from $0.20 per share to the present level over that time.

The just-declared dividend annualizes to $1.12 per share. That yields 2.7% at American Water's current stock price of $40.88.
