7 Dividend Increases: September 26-30, 2016


  • Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings.
  • I monitor dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis.
  • Recently, 7 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including 1 of my DivGro holdings.

To see the list of dividend growth stocks that announced dividend increases in the past week, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

The list includes 4 stocks that announced double-digit percentage increases, as well as one DivGro stock that increased its dividend!

Please feel free to leave comments on this article either at Seeking Alpha or here, on my blog. I'll do my best to respond to each comment as quickly as possible.


  1. Lots of big increases there(10%+). You can see lots of companies are doing well and passing that on to their shareholders - I wonder if it's a sign of trying to guarantee solid performance with the upcoming interest raise bumps which will affect the prices of dividend payers.

    1. Double digit percentage increases are exciting! Personally, I use these dividend increase announcements to identify stocks for further analysis. Often, stocks that increases by more than 10% have very low yields. About your speculation -- I don't think dividend payers try to guarantee solid performance... I think they're just returning cash to shareholders as earnings allow. We'll see how interest rates are adjusted. I don't think we'll see a hike before next year, but I might be wrong!
