4 Dividend Increases: January 1-12, 2018

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

In the past 2 weeks, 4 companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends.

Only one company announced a double-digit dividend increase. However, two of the remaining stocks have increased their dividends multiple times in the past year and their year-over-year dividend increases are double-digit percentage increases, too.

The top increase is from MSC Industrial Direct (MSM), direct marketers and distributors of a range of metalworking and maintenance, repair, and operations products and services throughout the United States. MSM increased its dividend by 20.83% and now yields 2.45% at $94.75 per share.

As a bonus, I'm including a summary of ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks. Scan the list of stocks to see if there's a stock you want to pick up before the ex-dividend date so you can grab the next dividend.

Please see this article at Seeking Alpha for details.
