5 Dividend Increases: October 1-5, 2018

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential. Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list helps me identify candidates for further analysis.

In the last week, 5 companies decided to increase their dividends. One of these increases is a double-digit percentage increase!

The top increase is from American Financial Group (AFG), an insurance holding company based in Cincinnati, Ohio. AFG  provides property and casualty insurance in the United States and sells these products through independent insurance agents and brokers, as well as through employee agents. AFG announced a solid increase of 14% and now yields 1.45% at $110.61 per share.

The runner-up is another Ohio-based company, RPM International (RPM). Founded in 1947 and headquartered in Medina, RPM manufactures, markets, and sells specialty chemical products, including paints, protective coatings, roofing systems, sealants, and adhesives. RPM announced an increase of 9% and now yields 2.33% at $60.13 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.

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.
