Summary Of Dividend Increases In Q1-2019

I like monitoring dividend increases for a selection of stocks in the CCC list because I consider such stocks to be worthy candidates for further analysis. The following screens determine the selection:

     • Dividend Yield ≥ 1.0%
     • Market cap ≥ $1 billion
     • No stocks that are being acquired
     • No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks

This article provides a summary of dividend increases announced in the first quarter of 2019 (Q1-2019), as summarized in my weekly Dividend Increases article series.

In preparing for this article, I excluded dividend increases of stocks not in the latest available CCC list (dated 03/29/19) and those that no longer pass the above screens.

Exactly 204 companies in the latest CCC list announced dividend increases in Q1-2019, but one company increased its dividend twice in Q1-2019, so there are 205 dividend increases in total.

Exactly 471 companies in the latest CCC list announced dividend increases in 2018, but several companies increased their dividends more than once in 2018. In all, there are 580 dividend increases.

The top increase is from Independent Bank Group (IBTX) with a 79% increase. IBTX operates as the bank holding company for Independent Bank, which provides a range of commercial banking products and services to businesses, professionals, and individuals in the United States. The company offers various deposit and loan products, as well as other financial services. IBTX was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in McKinney, Texas.
