3 Dividend Increases: March 19-23, 2018

I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise their dividends show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings.

I monitor a selection of the CCC stocks using several screens to limit the number of stocks to monitor. For example, I consider only stocks with market caps greater than $500M.

Only three stocks on my watch list announced increases last week. One of these is a DivGro stock.

The top increase is from Horizon Bancorp (HBNC), a company that provides a range of banking services in Northern and Central Indiana and Southwestern and Central Michigan. HBNC announced a substantial increase of 15%. The stock now yields 2.06% at $29.19 per share.

To see details of all the dividend increases announced last week, please read this article at Seeking Alpha. I include three F.A.S.T. Graphs to illustrate the impressive earnings and dividend growth rates of some of these stocks.

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.
