36 Dividend Increases: April 23-27, 2018 (Part 3: Remaining Sectors)

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch is one way to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

Last week, 36 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases. I own five of these stocks in my DivGro portfolio.

Part 1 and Part 2 presented dividend increases for stocks in the Energy, Utilities, and Financials sectors. This is Part 3, which presents dividend increases for stocks in the remaining sectors.



Three of the stocks in the remaining sectors announced double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from Leg Mason (WM), a provider of investment management and related services to institutional and individual clients, company-sponsored mutual funds and other pooled investments. LM increased its dividend by 21% and now yields 3.43% at $39.64 per share.

The two other stocks that announced double-digit dividend increases are Avery Dennison (AVY) and Rockwell Automation (ROK). AVY announced a dividend increase of 16% and now yields 1.98% at $104.85 per share, while ROK announced an increase of 10%, now yielding 2.21% at $166.29.

To see all the dividend increases in the sectors other than those covered in Part 1 and Part 2, 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.
