28 Dividend Increases: December 3-7, 2018 (Part 1: Real Estate Sector)

I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise their dividend payments show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

In the past week, 28 companies declared dividend increases.
Part 1 covers dividend increases in the Real Estate sector. See Part 2 and Part 3 for dividend increases in the other sectors.

None of the Real Estate sector stocks announced double-digit percentage increases, but the year-over-year increase of one of the stocks is 20%! This happens when a company increases its dividend more than once a year.

The top increase is from CoreSite Realty (COR), is a real estate investment trust that owns, acquires, constructs, and operates data centers in the United States. The company announced an increase of 6.8% and now yields 4.53% at $97.19 per share.

The runner-up is American Tower (AMT), a real estate investment trust that owns, develops, and operates multi-tenant communications sites across the globe. The company announced an increase of 6.33% and now yields 2.02% at $166.43 per share. Year-over-year, AMT's increase is 20% due to multiple increases in the past year.

To see details of all 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.
