Dividend Increases: March 25-29, 2019

I monitor dividend increases to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies can only raise their dividends sustainably if they grow earnings sufficiently.

Last week, three companies I monitor announced dividend increases. This article provides a summary and includes a table of ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks.

The top increase is from Oxford Industries (OXM), an apparel company that designs, sources, markets, and distributes products of company-owned brands, including Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer.  OXM announced an increase of 9% and now yields 1.97% at $75.26 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.

  1. Hey DivGro. I see that you have a ton of money on Ford (F). What's your view on the company? Is the dividend safe? Are you looking to add on it? anyway, what's your take?

    1. The reason I hold F is its a good stock for options trading, and it pays a nice dividend, too. F pays about 47% of its earnings as a dividend. It is OK for now, but I wouldn't want to see it go much higher (above 60%). Debt is reasonable and F generated positive free cash flow for 10 years running. But earnings have declined for several consecutive quarters, which is something to keep an eye on.
