23 Dividend Increases: October 22-26, 2018 (Part 2: Remaining Sectors)

One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases. I look for companies that regularly increase their dividends.

This past week, 23 companies on the CCC list announced dividend increases. Part 1 covered dividend increase announcements of stocks in the Financials and Real Estate sectors. This is Part 2, which covers the remaining sectors.

Two of the 11 stocks in Part 2 announced double-digit percentage increases.

The top increase is from Merck (MRK), a global healthcare company that provides prescription medicines, vaccines, biologic therapies, and animal health products. MRK announced an increase of about 15% and now yields 3.13% at $70.40 per share.

The runner-up is Stepan (SCL), a company that sells specialty and intermediate chemicals to manufacturers for use in a broad range of industries. SCL announced an increase of about 11% and now yields 1.19% at $84.07 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.
