17 Dividend Increases, February 8-February 12, 2016

Includes: BPL • CHD • CMP • CSCO • DPS • HAS • KMB • LLL • NEE • NUS • NWE • OMI • RAI • RHI • TRI • UPS • WGL


  • I monitor dividend increases for stocks in my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis and to make yield on cost adjustments for stocks I own.
  • Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential. 
  • Last week, 17 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including 3 of the stocks I hold in my DivGro portfolio.

To see the list of companies that announced dividend increases, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

The list includes 6 stocks with double digit dividend increases and 3 DivGro holdings that announced dividend increases!

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. Hey Divgro,

    Thanks for the list once again!
    I don't own any of these, but CSCO looks very attractive by these numbers. Very steady growth, cheap stock, with a descent yield. I'll add it to my watchlist.

    Best wishes, DfS

    1. Thanks, DfS -- yes, CSCO looks quite attractive. I just joined the CCC list as a new Challenger with a 5 year streak of dividend increases. Thanks for reading and commenting!

  2. Thanks again for compiling these. I missed some of these announcements since I just track the companies but don't own them. PEP also announced an increase although it hasn't been declared yet. They have a very weird increase schedule. I'm looking forward to KOs raise which is likely coming later this week.

    1. You're welcome, PIP -- thanks for reading and commenting. I'll probably cover PEP and KO in the next few editions. I usually wait until there's a news release available that declares a dividend.

  3. CMP and DPS for me! Yippee! Thanks for the info!

    1. Congratulations -- its really nice to get news of a raise for stocks you own! Take care!
