32 Dividend Increases: January 22-26, 2018 (Part 2: Energy and Utilities)

Companies that regularly raise their dividends show confidence in their ability to grow earnings. In the past week, 32 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including 5 of my DivGro holdings.

Part 1 covered dividend increases for the Financials sector. This is Part 2, which presents dividend increases for the Energy and Utilities sectors. Part 3 will present raises from the remaining sectors.

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.

The top increase in from one of the stocks in my portfolio, Valero Energy (VLO), an independent petroleum refining and marketing company based in San Antonio, Texas. VLO increased its dividend by 14.3% and now yields 3.32% at $98.69 per share.

The runner-up is NiSource (NI), an energy holding company based in Merrillville, Indiana. NI increased its dividend by 11.4% and now yields 3.22% at $24.50 per share.

To see the other dividend increases, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.
