Dividend Increases: May 13-17, 2019

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

I monitor dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis.

Last week, ten companies declared dividend increases, including two of the stocks I own.

The top increase is from CoreSite Realty (COR),  a real estate investment trust that owns, acquires, constructs, and operates data centers in the United States. COR announced a solid increase of 18% and now yields 4.17% at $117.01 per share.

The runner-up is Legg Mason (LM), an asset management holding company with operations in the United States and the United Kingdom, and several other countries. LM's dividend increase is 18%, improving the stock's yield to 4.53% at $35.31 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.
