14 Dividend Increases: January 16-20, 2017

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis.

Last week, fourteen companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including one of the stocks I own in my portfolio.

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

Two stocks announced double-digit percentage increases, 17%, and 11%. Realty Income Corporation (O) is the one DivGro stock that announced a new dividend. This the company's 90th dividend increase since Realty Income's listing on the NYSE in 1994.

  1. There have been quite a few raises lately.... maybe it's just that time of the year?

    1. Its the financial year-end for many companies, so we can expect lots of raises!

  2. Two on the raise list I own, O and ED. This time of the year is our Christmas :)

    1. You're right! I love it when stocks in my portfolio announce dividend increases. Getting paid more for just owning the stocks is sweet!

  3. None that I own, but always great news for any dividend investors. Proves once again that our strategy is working! ;-)


    1. Its great to be a dividend growth investor and get paid more simply for owning stocks! What a concept! Thanks for commenting and take care!
