    This is where I got the B.S. from:
    Firstly, the 0.764 is GBP, not USD. Secondly, there is no duch annozncement 3 days ago on the company website that I can find; finally, that's not what will be paid as its next dividend

    The BS fron "simply wall steeet":

    AstraZeneca (LON:AZN) Has Announced That It Will Be Increasing Its Dividend To $0.764

    The board of AstraZeneca PLC (LON:AZN) has announced that it will be paying its dividend of $0.764 on the 12th of September, an increased payment from last year's comparable dividend. This takes the annual payment to 2.1% of the current stock

    I believe some analysts have their math wrong on AZN dividend.
    My understanding is that AZN pays out 2/3rds of the annual dividend in february and the remaining 1/3rd in september.
    So if they have raised the september dividend to $0.764 I am taking that as an annual dividend of $2.292 which is 3.5%, not 2.1%.

    I am surprised that we haven't seen a positive share price reaction to that news 3 days ago.

    It seems also that Yahoo takes the sept dividend and only multiplies by 2 ( because dividend is payed biannually) instead of muliplying by 3 because the feb dividend is twice the sept dividend.

    Can't find anything on company website about a dividend ibcrease announced 3 days ago. Seems like sone misinformation. Nasdaq lists the 2022 dividend as $1.98 and the yield as 2.98%. At leadt this is better than Yahoo's numbets

    Ex div drop of $1 for a 46c dividend?
    When the ex div drop is overdone, it's often a good buying opportunity

    Over the last 5 years AZN stockprice increased from $30 to $66, averaging 17%/year compound. It's up from $60 to $66 or 10% year to date so is on track to do another 17% this year. That would make the year end price nominally $70.2 .
    But a dividend increase could goose that up.

    The fact we didn't plummet after the $AZN news is very positive. It's a sign we need to hold steady. #DIAMONDHANDS

    Buy sizes are bigger than sell sizes at this price so it seems people are loading up here and sellers could dry up and we'll be back above $66 shortly

    Analysts estimate the newly proven drugs in the pipeline will raise AZNs bottom line by 17% over the next year making it a screaming buy here.
