Dividend Increases: May 6-10, 2019 (Part 3: Remaining Sectors)

I monitor dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly increase their dividends show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

Last week, 27 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases. Part 1 covered stocks in the Industrials and Materials sectors, while Part 2 covered the Consumer Discretionary and Information Technology sectors. This is Part 3, which covers the remaining sectors.

The top increase is from First Merchants (FRME), the financial holding company for First Merchants Bank, which provides community banking services in Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio. FRME announced an impressive increase of 18% and now yields 2.77% at $37.52 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.
