28 Dividend Increases: December 3-7, 2018 (Part 2: Health Care And Industrials Sectors)

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch is one way to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies can only raise their dividends regularly and sustainably if they grow earnings sufficiently.

In the last week, 28 companies declared dividend increases, including 2 of my DivGro holdings. Part 1 of this article presented dividend increases for stocks in the Real Estate sector. This is Part 2, which covers the Health Care and Industrials sectors. See Part 3 for dividend increases of stocks in the remaining sectors.

Four of the 9 stocks covered in Part 2 announced double-digit percentage increases and the top increase is an impressive 21%!

The top increase is from Graco (GGG), a company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that designs, manufactures and markets equipment to pump, meter, mix, and dispense a variety of fluids and coatings. GGG announced an impressive increase of 21% and now yields 1.52% at $42.02 per share.

The runner-up is Paccar (PCAR), a company that designs, manufactures, and distributes light, medium, and heavy-duty commercial trucks under the Kenworth, Peterbilt, and DAF nameplates. The stock now yields 2.24% at $57.09 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.
