Fastenal (FAST) Increases Dividend by 13%

Fastenal announced its 25th consecutive double-digit annualized dividend. They’ve done this for over two decades.

Fastenal Company reported its board of directors declared a dividend of $0.35 per share to be paid in cash on March 2, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 2, 2023. Except for share and per share information, dollar amounts are stated in millions.

Fastenal began paying annual dividends in 1991, semi-annual dividends in 2003, and then expanded to quarterly dividends in 2011. In addition to these regular dividend payments, Fastenal has previously paid special one-time dividends in December 2008, December 2012, and December 2020. Our board of directors currently intends to continue paying quarterly dividends, though all future determination as to payment of dividends will depend upon the financial condition and results of operations of the company and such other factors as are deemed relevant by the board of directors, such as income tax rates related to dividends at that time.
