16 Dividend Increases: October 29-November 2, 2018

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

Recently, 16 companies announced dividend increases, including one of the stocks I own.

Six of these increases are double-digit percentage increases!

The top increase is from Manulife Financial (MFC), a company that provides financial advice, insurance, and wealth and asset management solutions for individuals, groups, and institutions in Asia, Canada, and the United States. MFC announced a solid increase of 14% and now yields 6.03% at $16.75 per share.

The runner-up is Estee Lauder (EL). The company manufactures and markets skin care, makeup, fragrance, and hair care products in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific. EL announced an increase of 13% and now yields 1.22% at $143.11 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.
