9 Dividend Increases: November 7-11, 2016



  • Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings.
  • One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases.
  • Recently, 9 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends.

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 two stocks with double-digit percentage increases. None of my DivGro stocks announced dividend increases this time.

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. I used to own ATO back in the day and wish I would have held on!


    1. There are countless stocks I regret selling too early... but you can only act on what you know at the time!

  2. I see ADP is on the list.

    ADP has been a good investment for me and the dividend is great too.

    1. I don't own ADP but I noticed that the stock made November's top 10 list, so it is worth looking into!

  3. I don't own any of these FerdiS, but UVV and ADP are on my watch list. I would like to own both but valuations are problematic at the moment.

    SIX is interesting. Not on my radar-- but need to add it with its 4.6% yield. I am a long time CA resident (not anymore) and have been to Magic Mountain a few times so I know SIX's product. Who would have thought an amusement park would yield like that? Will do some DD. Thanks

    1. As you know, Mike, my watch list is quite large and is essentially the CCC stocks with Market Cap ≥ $500 million, Dividend Yield ≥ 2% for Challengers, and Dividend Yield ≥ 1% for Contenders and Champions. That's nearly 400 stocks.

      My motivation for such a large watch list is precisely because I like to delve out potential gems like SIX. Of course, as you point out, it is necessary to do due diligence when you find these "potential" gems!

  4. BPL is not one I have heard of before but at first glance meets most of my screen. I will have to check them out. Thanks FerdiS.

    1. BPL is a limited partnership with special treatment at tax time. I no longer invest in partnerships because I don't like dealing with K-1's at tax time. (I do my own taxes...)
