27 Dividend Increases: February 12-16, 2018 (Part 3: Remaining Sectors)

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch is one way to identify candidates for further analysis. Last week, 27 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including four stocks I own.

Part 1 presented dividend increases of stocks in the Industrials and Information Technology sectors. Part 2 covered dividend increase announcements from stocks in the Financials, Consumer Discretionary, and Real Estate sectors. Here, I cover 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 one of the stocks I own, AbbVie (ABBV), a research-based biopharmaceutical company that develops and markets a variety of healthcare products. ABBV increased its dividend by 35% and now yields 3.24% at $118.60 per share.

Four other stock in the remaining sectors announced double-digit percentage increases. One is Clorox (CLX), a company based in Oakland, California, that manufactures and markets consumer and professional products worldwide. CLX announced a dividend increase of 14%. The stock now yields 2.92% at $131.70 per share.

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.
