- Companies that regularly increase their 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.
- In the past week, 7 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including 1 of the stocks I own.
The list includes 3 stocks with double-digit percentage increases, while one of my DivGro stocks also announced a dividend increase. In fact, this stock has increased its dividend every quarter since October 2012!
