4 Dividend Increases: March 27-31, 2017

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

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 week, four companies on my my watch list declared dividend increases, including one of the stocks I hold in my portfolio.

All four dividend increases this week are single-digit increases.

One of my DivGro holdings, Raytheon Company (RTN) announced a welcome increase of 8.87%. The stock is doing great for me, with annualized total returns of 24%.

To see this week's dividend increases, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

  1. booo none of mine are on the list. lol.

    1. Check back next time -- maybe you'll be on the list then!

  2. That's awesome! Raytheon wasn't on my radar, but now it is.

    1. Raytheon is performing well for me, as mentioned. I'm glad I opened a small position when I did!

  3. There is nothing as satisfying as getting a divi raise!

    1. I can think of more satisfying things, but not related to investing :-)
