9 Dividend Increases: March 13-17, 2017


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

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

This week, nine companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including one of my DivGro holdings.



Three of the nine dividend increases are double-digit increases, with Oracle Corporation (ORCL) topping the list with an impressive dividend increase of 27%!

One of my DivGro Stocks, the Old Faithful of dividend growth stocks, Realty Income Corporation (O), announced its 91st dividend increase since the company's listing on the NYSE in 1994.

  1. Awesome information thank you! I have been looking at O for awhile but that Payout ratio has kept me away for awhile.

    1. O is a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) and, as such, must pay out at least 90% of its taxable income in the form of distributions.
