Dividend Increases: January 25-31, 2020 (Part 1)

I monitor dividend increases for stocks in the Dividend Champions List [CCC list]. The CCC list is separated into three categories based on how long companies have maintained their streak of annually increasing dividends: Champions (25+ years), Contenders (10- 24 years), and Challengers (5-9 years).

In the past two weeks, 41 companies in the CCC list decided to increase their dividends, including six of my DivGro holdings. In Part 1 of this article, I share dividend increases announced by Champions and Contenders. Part 2 will cover the Challengers.

The largest increase among the Champions and Contenders comes from S&P Global (SPGI), a company that provides independent ratings, benchmarks, analytics, and data to the capital and commodity markets across the world. SPGI announced an impressive increase of 18% and now yields 0.89% at $294.83 per share.

To see details of the increases announced last week, 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.
