Stocks in this article: AMTD

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NYSE: AMTD) today announced that its board of directors has declared a one-time, special cash dividend of $0.50 per share. The dividend will be distributed on Dec. 31, 2012 to shareholders of record as of Dec. 21, 2012.

“TD Ameritrade is fortunate to have a unique business model and a strong, stable financial position that gives us a great deal of flexibility in determining how and when we return or deploy capital for the benefit of our shareholders,” said Fred Tomczyk, president and chief executive officer of TD Ameritrade. “After increasing our quarterly dividend by 50 percent for fiscal 2013, we have determined that an additional, one-time dividend is another good strategic and financial use of our capital at this time.”
