31 Dividend Increases: July 16-20, 2018 (Part 2: Non-Financials)

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential. Monitoring dividend increase announcements helps me identify candidates for further analysis.

Last week, 31 companies that match my selection criteria declared dividend increases, including three of my DivGro holdings.

Part 1 presented details on dividend increases from the Financials sector stocks. In Part 2 the remaining sectors are covered.

The top increase in Part 2 is from El Paso Electric (EE), a public utility company engaged in the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity in west Texas and southern New Mexico. The company announced an increase of 8%, so NTRS now yields 2.36% at $60.95 per share.

The runner up is Aqua America (WTR), a holding company based in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, that provides water or wastewater services in the United States.  WTR increased its dividend by 7% and now yields 2.40% at $36.34 per share.

To see details of all increases in sectors other than the Financials sector, 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.
