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!

  1. That's quite a few increases lately, thanks for covering. Some really nice stocks involved too which is nice.

    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.

  2. Congrats with your raise while doing no work at all... ;-)

    1. Don't you just love that about dividend growth investing!

  3. Own all 3 + NEE. Got love this time of the year :)

    1. That's great, Dividends 4 Future! Getting paid more for just owning shares is what DGI is all about!

  4. WOOT WOOT! 7.6% increase is amazing! You have some great names in the portfolio and I'm sure we will see an increase like this next year as well! Man I love dividend investing!

    1. Yes -- dividend growth investing is what it's all about! I really enjoy searching for dividend increases and this series of articles helps me to look for new candidates that I may not be aware of. Thanks for reading and commenting!
