26 Dividend Increases: February 5-9, 2018 (Part 3: Remaining Sectors)

Companies that regularly increase their dividends show confidence in their ability to grow earnings. I monitor dividend increase announcements from stocks in the CCC list.

Last week, 26 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including 3 stocks I own. Part 1 presented dividend increases from stocks in the Industrials and Information Technology sectors. Part 2 covered dividend increase announcements from stocks in the Financials and Consumer Discretionary sectors. Here, I cover dividend increases from stocks in the remaining sectors.

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

The top increase is from Church & Dwight (CHD), a company that develops, manufactures and markets a range of household, personal care, and specialty products. CHD increased its dividend by 14.47%. The stock now yields 1.78% at $48.56 per share.

No other stock in the remaining sectors announced double-digit percentage increases.

To see all the dividend increases in the sectors other than those covered in Part 1 and Part 2, 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.

Please feel free to leave comments on this article either at Seeking Alpha or here, on my blog. I'll do my best to respond to each comment as quickly as possible.
