Dividend Increases for Thursday July 7, 2011

Westeupward pointing arrow daily dividend investor reports increase western gas partners lprn Gas Partners, LP (ticker: WES)  increased their quarterly dividend today by $.025/share for an increase of 3.8%. Based on today’s closing price of $36.15/share Western Gas Partners pays out a 4.48% dividend yield.

Because WGP is a limited partnership, you will be issued a K-1 tax form each year and will be required to include US Federal Tax Form 1065 when completing your tax return. As I currently hold such small positions in the DDI portfolio I typically avoid adding shares of  limited partnership interests to my holdings in an attempt to keep tax reporting as simple as possible.

I would consider making an exception for limited partnership interests that generate monthly income – however, Western Gas Partners currently pays dividends quarterly in August, November, February and May, so for now I won’t be considering adding shares of WGP.
