Pitney Bowes Inc (NYSE:PBI):

In general, dividends are not always predictable, following the ups and downs of company profits over time. Therefore, a good first due diligence step in forming an expectation of annual yield going forward, is looking at the history above, for a sense of stability over time. This can help in judging whether the most recent dividends from these companies are likely to continue. If they do continue, the current estimated yields on annualized basis would be 1.21% for DST Systems Inc, 0.89% for MKS Instruments Inc, and 4.99% for Pitney Bowes Inc.

In Monday trading, DST Systems Inc shares are currently trading flat, MKS Instruments Inc shares are up about 0.1%, and Pitney Bowes Inc shares are up about 0.3% on the day.
