22 Dividend Increases: February 13-17, 2017


Companies can only increase their dividends regularly if earnings grow sufficiently.

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list helps me identify candidates for further analysis.

Recently, 22 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends, including 3 of the stocks I hold 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.

Three stocks in my DivGro portfolio announced dividend increases: Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO), The Coca-Cola Company (KO), and T. Rowe Price Group, Inc (TROW). The average increase is 7.6%, which is very gratifying!

Seven stocks announced double-digit percentage increases, including one of the stocks I own!

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. Yeah, this time of year lots of companies announce dividend increases. I'm expecting more when all those MLPs meet to finalize year-end results for tax season.
