Times of London, “Slashed Investments Pay Dividends”

Europe’s corporate giants are returning their spare cash to investors while loading up on cheap debt, taking dividend payouts to their highest level in ten years, according to a study from REL, a division of The Hackett Group. The largest 1,000 businesses across Europe have raised dividends by a fifth to €234 billion since the financial crisis in 2008, while doubling the amount of cash on hand to €881 billion.
