"Snap-on's dividend is a core component of our capital allocation strategy, as demonstrated by our payment of consecutive quarterly cash dividends, without interruption or reduction, since 1939," Chief Executive Nick Pinchuk said in a statement. Shares of Snap-on were flat in the extended session and ended the regular trading day up 0.4%.
