16 Dividend Increases: May 1-5, 2017


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

I monitor dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis.

This week, 16 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends, including two of the stocks I own. Four of the sixteen stocks announced double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from Trinity Industries (TRN) with a solid 18% increase. The stock has a 1.92% yield and a stellar 5-year dividend growth rate of 21%!

As for the stocks in my portfolio that announced increases, there is Apple (AAPL) with a 10.53% increase and STAG Industrial (STAG) with an increase of 0.71%.
