Cablevision announced late last week a regular, quarterly dividend for the first time in the company's history. Word of the 10-cent-a-share dividend came one day after Harbinger Capital Management revealed its 4.9% stake. "What we have heard from our shareholders is they have a lot of confidence in the company and in the management of the company and we extend that to mean to us that they want us to continue to grow the value of the company," said Chief Executive Officer James Dolan.
