20 Dividend Increases: November 12-23, 2018 (Part 2: Remaining Sectors)

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential. Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch is one way to identify candidates for further analysis.

Recently, 20 companies announced dividend increases, including 3 of my DivGro holdings. Part 1 of this article covered increases from the Consumer Discretionary, Consumer Staples, and Utilities sectors. This is Part 2, which covers the remaining sectors.

Two of the 9 stocks covered in Part 2 announced double-digit percentage increases and the top increase is a spectacular 29%!

The top increase is from Cathay General Bancorp (CATY), a company that offers various commercial banking products and services to individuals, professionals, and small to medium-sized businesses in the United States and in Hong Kong. CATY announced a spectacular increase of 29% and now yields 3.25% at $38.21 per share.

The runner up is HP (HPQ) with a solid increase of 15%. The company is a global provider of products, technologies, software, solutions and services to individual consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors. The stock now yields 2.85% at $22.51 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.
