7 Dividend Increases: September 17-21, 2018

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential. I monitor dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis.

In the last week, 7 companies announced dividend increases, including 4 of the stocks I own. Four of the dividend increases are double-digit percentage increases!

The top increase is from JPMorgan Chase (JPM), a financial holding company providing investment banking, financial services, commercial banking, financial transaction processing, and asset management. JPM announced a spectacular increase of 43% and now yields 2.72% at $117.85 per share.

The runner-up is Texas Instruments (TXN), one of DivGro's holdings. TXN declared a dividend of 77¢ per share for an impressive increase of 24%!

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.
