26 Dividend Increases: February 5-9, 2018 (Part 1: Industrials and Information Technology Stocks)

Companies can only increase their dividends regularly if they grow earnings sufficiently. I like monitoring dividend increase announcements because I consider stocks that regularly increase their dividends to be candidates for further analysis. 

Last week, 26 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including three stock I own. Part 1 provides a summary of dividend increases announced by stocks in the Industrials and Information Technology sectors. Part 2 will cover dividend increases from stocks in the Financials and Consumer Discretionary sectors, while Part 3 will cover the remaining sectors.

As a bonus, I include a summary of available ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks.

The top increase in the Industrials and Information Technology sectors is from Corning (GLW), a company that sells specialty glass and ceramics. GLW increased its dividend by 16% and now yields 2.44% at $28.77 per share.

No other stocks announced double-digit percentage increases, though the increases from Union Pacific (UNP), United Parcel Service (UPS), and Gilead Sciences (GILD) all are within a rounding error from 10%.

To see all the dividend increases in the Industrials and Information Technology sectors, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

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.
