The dividend is payable on November 24 to shareholders of record on November 10. The annual dividend of $2 per share now reflects a dividend yield of 4%.

However, M.D.C. Holdings reported lower-than-expected Q3 results. Earnings of $1.99 per share fell short of the Street’s estimates of $2.17. Further, total revenues of $1.3 billion also failed to meet the consensus estimate of $1.41 billion.

JPMorgan analyst Michael Rehaut recently downgraded M.D.C. Holdings to Hold from Buy with a price target of $66 (31.6% upside potential).

Overall, the stock has a Moderate Buy consensus rating based on 2 Buys and 2 Holds. The average M.D.C. Holdings price target of $73.50 implies 46.5% upside potential from current levels.
