25 Dividend Increases: October 30-November 3, 2017 (Part 2: Remaining Sectors)

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

One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases.

In the last week, 25 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including one of the stocks I hold in my portfolio. Part 1 covered dividend increases of Energy, Financials, and Real Estate sector stocks. This is Part 2, which covers the remaining sectors.

Three companies announced double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from one of the stocks I own in DivGro, Starbucks (SBUX), with another stellar increase of 20%! SBUX now yields 2.14% at $56.03 per share. 

The runner-up is the manufacturer of skin care, makeup, fragrance, and hair care products, Estee Lauder (EL). The company announced an increase of 11.8% and now yields 1.25% at $121.71 per share.

Third in line is Motorola Solutions (MSI) with an increase of 10.6%. The stock now yields 2.21% at $94.25 per share.
