21 Dividend Increases: May 7-11, 2018 (Part 2: Remaining Sectors)

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential. Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list helps me identify candidates for further analysis. I look for announcements from stocks in the CCC list, but I use several screens to limit the number of stocks to monitor.

Last week, 21 companies on my watch list declared dividend increases.

Part 1 presented dividend increases for stocks in the Energy, Financials, and Industrials sectors. This is Part 2, which presents dividend increases for stocks in the remaining sectors.

Four stocks in the remaining sectors announced double-digit increases. The top increase is from Tractor Supply (TSCO), a company that operates rural lifestyle retail stores in the United States. TSCO announced an increase of about 15% and now yields 1.78% at $69.62 per share.

Factset Research System (FDS) and Chesapeake Utilities (CPK) announced increases of 14.3% and 13.9%, respectively.

FDS provides integrated financial information and analytical applications to investment communities worldwide. The stock now yields 1.3% at $197.62 per share.

CPK is a diversified energy company engaged in regulated and unregulated energy businesses. The stock now yields 1.94% at $76.45 per share.

To see all the dividend increases in sectors other than the Energy, Financials, and Industrials sectors, 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.
