The auto maker suspended its quarterly dividend, then 15 cents a share, in March 2020 due the pandemic. It was reinstated last fall at 10 cents a share.

The stock, which yields 4.2%, has returned about negative 36% this year through the close on July 27, dividends included, compared with minus 15% for the S&P 500 .
