Ford Motor Co. on Thursday announced a fourth-quarter dividend of 10 cents per share, the same dividend the Dearborn automaker paid the first three quarters of 2013.
The dividend is twice as much as the dividend paid during last year’s fourth quarter.
Ford had announced in late 2011 the return of a 5-cent-per-share dividend. For a five-year span dating from late 2006 through 2011, Ford paid no dividend.
This year’s fourth quarter dividend is payable on Dec. 2 to shareholders of record on Nov. 1.
