Dividend Increases: February 4-8, 2019 (Part 1: Materials, Real Estate, and Utilities Sectors)

This article provides a summary of recent dividend increases. Last week more than 30 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases! In Part 1, I'm covering dividend increases announced for stocks in the Materials, Real Estate, and Utilities sectors. Part 2 will cover the Financials and Industrials sectors, while Part 3 will cover the remaining sectors.

I monitor dividend increases because it helps me to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise their dividend payments show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

The top increase is from Vulcan Materials (VMC), a company that produces and supplies construction aggregates, asphalt mix, and ready-mixed concrete in the United States and the Bahamas. VMC announced an increase of 11% and now yields 1.17% at $104.41 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.
