WOODS CROSS— HollyFrontier Corporation (ticker symbol HFC) announced last week that it will provide special and regular cash dividends to its investors on June 10.
The amount of 50 cents per share will be paid to holders of record of common stock.

The 50-cent special payout is expected to cost the company about $102 million, according to reporting by the Wall Street Journal.
A quarterly dividend will also be paid on June 12 totaling 30 cents per share.
“Our Board of Directors continues their commitment to deliver shareholder value through both regular and special dividends,” CEO Mike Jennings said in a Thursday, May 26 press release. ‘Today’s announcement represents our ninth special dividend paid since our merger. Including today’s announced dividends, our last twelve month cash dividend yield stands at 7.1 percent relative to yesterday’s closing price of $48.43.”
