24 Dividend Increases: December 4-8, 2017 (Part 2: Non-Financials)


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.

Recently, 24 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends. Part 1 covered dividend increases from Financials and Real Estate sector stocks. Part 2 covers the non-Financials.

Four of the stocks I cover in Part 2 announced double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from Edison International (EIX), a company that generates and distributes electricity and provides energy services and technologies, including renewable energy, in the United States. EIX increased its dividend by 11.5% and now yields 3.37% at $71.80 per share.

The runner-up is Ecolab (ECL), a St. Paul, Minnesota-based company that provides water, hygiene, and energy technologies and services in over 170 countries. ECL announced an increase of 10.8% and now yields 1.21% at $135.33 per share.
