Dividend Increases: June 10-14, 2019

Companies that increase their dividends regularly show confidence in their ability to grow earnings. I monitor dividend increases to find candidates for analysis and possible investment.

This article summarizes last week's dividend increases and includes a summary of upcoming ex-dividend dates. Two of my DivGro stocks will pay higher dividends from now on.

The top increase is from Matson (MAT), a company that provides ocean transportation and logistics services to the domestic non-contiguous economies of Hawaii, Alaska, and Guam, as well as to other island economies in Micronesia. MAT announced an increase of 4.8% and now yields 2.37% at $36.60 per share.

To see the details of last week's 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. What do you think of buying SKT now? I see that you have 500 shares at 20. It's 15 now but not sure about how reliable that dividend is. Any takes?

    1. Simply Safe Dividends give SKT a Dividend Safety Score of 52, meaning Borderline Safe. I own several "Borderline Safe" dividend growth stocks. They are somewhat more risky but usually offer higher yields as compensation. SKT's current dividend yield is 8.81%, which is quite high. My position is less than 1% of portfolio value, so I'm OK with the added risk.

      Investors seem pessimistic about SKT's prospects for growth and so the stock price continues to decline. You'd need to do your own due diligence and determine if you're willing to accept the risk.

    2. Thanks Ferdis. I'm willing to risk $2000 to get this 9% yield. Thanks for your answer
