Dividend Increases: February 25-March 1, 2019 (Part 1: Industrials and Financials Sectors)

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.

This two-part article provides a summary of recent dividend increases. Part 1 covers dividend increases announced for stocks in the Industrials and sectors. Part 2 will cover dividend increases from stocks in the remaining sectors.

The top increase in the Industrials and Financials sectors comes from Amerisafe (AMSF), an insurance holding company that provides workers' compensation insurance in the United States. AMSF announced a solid increase of 14% and now yields 1.61% at $62.12 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.
