Continental Resources Inc. (CLR) will start paying a quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share in 2019. The first ever dividend is payable on November 21, 2019 to stockholders of record on November 7, 2019. An annual rate of 20 cents yields 0.5% at a stock price of $38.92.

"Today marks another milestone in Continental's history as we initiate a total shareholder return strategy," said Harold Hamm, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer in the company's press release announcing the dividend. "Our disciplined approach to balancing capital-efficient growth and reducing debt has enabled us to approve both an initial $0.20 per share annualized dividend and an initial $1 billion share-repurchase program. This demonstrates the confidence we have in the quality and sustainability of our assets and our commitment to maximizing shareholder value. We see the current value of our equity as being unreasonably low, making the acquisition of our stock the best use of excess cash at this time."
