In the past few weeks I've noticed a significant number of dividend increase announcements. One reason is that many companies announce dividend increases at the end of their fiscal year. Also, it seems like master limited partnerships (MLPs) announce new distributions around this time of year.
In a recent article, I present no fewer than 32 dividend and distribution increases for companies on my watch list. The increases vary from as high as 45% to as low as 0.75%. This article presents dividend increases announced during the week of February 2-6, 2015.
To see the list of 10 companies that announced dividend increases, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.
