Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential.
I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis.
Recently, nine companies on my watch list declared dividend increases. In this period, none of my DivGro's holdings announced dividend increases.
Four of the nine dividend increases are double-digit increases, with Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corp (AGM) and Vail Resorts Inc (MTN) topping the list with dividend increases of 38% and 30%, respectively.
