Includes: CTWS • FDS • LII • LYB • MSA • SCI • TEL 


  • Companies can only raise their dividends regularly if earnings grow sufficiently.
  • One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases.
  • In the last week, 7 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases.

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 3 stocks double digit percentage increases. No DivGro stocks are on the list this time.

  1. Never heard of some of these companies there are just too many dividend stocks out there! Will check some out in more detail.

    1. You're right, there are SO many dividend growth stocks to choose from! My approach is to screen stocks by several criteria and only look at those that pass the screens, otherwise this will turn into a full-time job!

  2. Awesome! love this update. There are so many that I did not know from the list.

    1. Thanks, Be Smart Rich -- I agree, there are many dividend growth stocks I just don't even know about. Writing these articles help me to find some of them, which is one reason why I do it! Take care...

  3. Thanks for sharing!
    Very interesting list. On the first sight "FactSet Research Systems" looks most interesting to me.

    1. Hi valuetradeblog -- thanks for reading and commenting. FDS looks interesting despite the lowish yield. The 5-year dividend growth rate of 14% makes up for that!
