31 Dividend Increases: January 23-27, 2017 (Part 1: Financials and MLPs)


Companies can only increase their dividends regularly if earnings grow sufficiently. One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases.

This past week, 31 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends.

Part one of this article reports on nine Financials sector stocks and three MLPs that announced dividend increases last week.

To see the list of dividend growth stocks that announced dividend increases in the past week, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

Three stocks announced double-digit percentage increases: 27%, 14%, and 10%. One of them, MarketAxess Holdings Inc (MKTX), is an interesting stock with a fairly low yield but an impressive 5-year dividend growth rate of nearly 24%. I include a chart from F.A.S.T. Graphs  illustrating the stock's recent performance and growth prospects.
