19 Dividend Increases: January 30-February 3, 2017

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

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.

This past week, 19 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including one of the stocks I own.

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

One stock in my DivGro portfolio announced a dividend increase: Eversource Energy (ES). While the increase of 6.74% is a little less than I would like to see, it handily beats the current inflation rate, so don't have too much to complain about.

Five stocks announced double-digit percentage increases!

  1. Up to 14% dividend increase is fantastic if you are a holder. I am not but for those that are, it would be a very positive article for them to read. Cheers
