5 Dividend Increases: November 20-24, 2017


I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise dividends show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings.

In the last week, 5 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including one of the stocks I own.

Only one stock announced a double-digit percentage increase, and it happens to be the stock I own!

The top increase is from Hormel Foods (HRL), a multinational manufacturer and marketer of consumer-branded food and meat products. HRL increased its dividend by 10.3% and now yields 2.18% at $34.41 per share.

The runner-up is Stock Yards Bancorp (SYBT) with an increase of 5%. The stock now yields 2.21% at $38.05 per share. This is SYBT's second dividend increase in the past year, though, and its year-over-year increase of 10.5% is impressive.

For details about the other dividend increases, please see this article at Seeking Alpha.
