Dividend Increases, March 23-April 10, 2015

Includes: ARG • FUL • GEL • HPQ • PAA • PNC • QCOM • SCS • WASH 

I monitor dividend increases for stocks in my watch list to identify candidates for further analysis and for possible inclusion in DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. Companies that regularly announce dividend increases show confidence about future earnings growth potential.

As a dividend growth investor, I'm interested in companies that not only pay dividends, but those that pay growing dividends. The dividend growth rate is important. If the annualized dividend growth rate fails to match (or exceed) the rate of inflation, your investment would effectively shrink.

I find it interesting to consider the percentage increase of each dividend increase. In the past 3 weeks, 9 of the companies on my watch list announced dividend increases. Please see this Seeking Alpha article for details.


  1. Nice post once again Ferdi.
    None of those are in my portfolio, but some are on my watchlist.

    QCOM sounds very interesting.
    Apart from HP, none of the other companies ring a bell for me as a foreign investor.

    Best wishes, DfS

    1. I'll be looking into QCOM pretty soon, so look out for a stock analysis post!

      Thanks for commenting -- it would be good to know which stocks pique your interest.
