34 Dividend Increases: July 23-27, 2018 (Part 1: Financials)


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.

This past week, 34 companies that match my watch list criteria announced dividend increases, including one of the stocks I own.
Part 1 presents details on dividend increases from the Financials sector, while Part 2 will cover the remaining sectors.

No fewer than nine of these increases are double digit percentage increases!

The top increase is from Comerica (CMA), a financial services company that provides various financial products and services to business and individual customers in Texas, Arizona, California, Florida, and Michigan. The company announced a spectacular increase of 77%, so CMA now yields 2.49% at $96.29 per share.

The runner up is Regions Financial (RF), a financial holding company that conducts its banking operations through Regions Bank, an Alabama state-chartered commercial bank. RF increased its dividend by an equally impressive 56% and now yields 3.02% at $18.56 per share.

To see details of all increases in 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.

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.
