32 Dividend Increases: January 22-26, 2018 (Part 1: Financials Sector)

I like monitoring dividend increases for stock son my watch list of dividend growth stocks because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis.

Recently, 32 companies on my watch list decided to increases their dividends, including 5 of the stocks I own.

Part 1 covers dividend increases for the Financials sector, while Part 2 and Part 3 will cover dividend increases for the remaining sectors.

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

The top increase in the Financial sector comes from Community Bank System (CBU), a bank holding company for two subsidiaries, Community Bank, N.A. and Benefit Plans Administrative Services. CBU increased its dividend by a whopping 47% and now yields 3.73% at $53.76 per share.

Three more Financials sector stocks announced double-digit percentage increases. To see these and other dividend increases, 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.
