31 Dividend Increases: January 23-27, 2017 (Part 2: Non-Financials)

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

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks my watch list is one way to identify candidates for further analysis.

This week, 31 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends, including 3 of my DivGro holdings.

Part 1 of this article reported on nine Financials sector stocks and three MLPs that announced dividend increases last week. Part 2 reports on 19 companies in sectors other than the Financials sector.

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 in my DivGro portfolio announced dividend increases: Valero Energy Corporation (VLO), Dominion Resources, Inc (D), and Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB). And, no fewer than five stocks announced double-digit percentage increases!

    1. Yeah, lots of raises this time of year! I'm happy that 3 of my stocks announced dividend increases. Nothing like getting paid more for just being a shareholder! Thanks for commenting and all the best!
