7 Dividend Increases: September 18-22, 2017

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

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.

Recently, seven companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including two of the stocks I own.

Two of the stocks announced double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from  Texas Instruments (TXN) with an impressive increase of 24%! The stock now yields 2.81% at $88.27 per share.

The runner-up is JP Morgan Chase (JPM), which now yields 2.36% at $94.83. JPM increased their dividend by 12%.

For details about all this week's dividend increases, please see this article at Seeking Alpha.

  1. Out of the companies that you mentioned, Microsoft is the only one that I own. Despite being at 52week highs when I bought it, I thought that they still had plenty of growth ahead of them. Fortunately that thesis is still looking good. Thanks for sharing FerdiS.

    1. MSFT is a great dividend growth stock -- if you stay long for long, you'll be very happy you did. I know I'm sticking around! I also like TXN, but it seems like I've missed the boat again!

  2. Don't feel bad FerdiS. I have missed the boat on TXN over the years too. Like More Dividends though, have been long MSFT for past 5 years and I'm happy about that and their latest dividend increase.

    1. Hi, Tom -- I owned TXN before, but sold my shares when I decided to start options trading. It was hard to sell a winner, but at the time TXN was trading well above fair value and I had to sell some of my holdings in order to round up to 100 shares (or multiples of 100 shares) the positions I wanted to target with options. So far, TXN has not really given me an opportunity to get back in...
