Nucor Corporation NUE recently announced the hike in its regular quarterly cash dividend on its common stock to 50 cents per share, up 23% from the prior payout of 40.5 cents. This is Nucor’s 195th consecutive quarterly cash dividend, which is payable on Feb 11, 2022 to shareholders of record as of Dec 31, 2021.Nucor raised its regular, or base, dividend for 49 consecutive years since it first started paying out dividends in 1973.Nucor's board also approved the buyback of up to $4 billion of the company's outstanding common stock.
