8 Dividend Increases: August 6-10, 2018

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

In the last week, eight companies on my watch list announced dividend increases.

Three of the dividend increases are double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from Broadridge Financial Solutions (BR), a company that provides investor communications and technology-driven solutions for the financial services industry. BR announced a spectacular increase of 33% and now yields 1.49% at $129.37 per share.

The runner-up is Manulife Financial (MFC) with an impressive increase of 28%. MFC and its subsidiaries provide financial advice, insurance, and wealth and asset management solutions. The stock now yields 4.82% at $18.22 per share.

To see details of these 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.
