The grocery and drug store company says it will pay a quarterly dividend of 20 cents per share, up from 18 cents per share. Metro reported its profit amounted to 79 cents per diluted share for the 12 weeks ended Dec. 22, compared with a profit of nearly $1.3 billion or $5.67 per diluted share for the same period a year earlier. At that time, it benefited from the sale of its stake in Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. to help fund its deal to buy the Jean Coutu Group Inc.
