13 Dividend Increases: May 21-25, 2018

Companies that regularly raise their dividend payments show confidence in future earnings growth potential. One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases.

I look for dividend increase announcements from stocks in the CCC list, but I use several screens to limit the number of stocks to monitor. For example, I look for stocks with market caps exceeding $500m. In the past week, thirteen companies on my watch list decided to increase their dividends.

No fewer than six of the increases I'm sharing are double-digit increases!

The top increase is from NetApp (NTAP), a hybrid cloud data services company based in Sunnyvale, California. NTAP announced a spectacular increase of 100% and the stock now yields 2.39% at $67.15 per share!

Universal (UVV) is a global leaf tobacco supplier. The company hiked their dividend by 35% and now yields 4.48% at $66 per share. 

To see details of all these 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.
