Dividend Increases: February 22-28, 2020 (Part 2)

Last week, another 38 companies in the Dividend Champions List [CCC list] announced dividend increases.

Part 1 covered dividend increases announced by Dividend Champions (stocks with 25 or more consecutive years of higher dividend payments) and Dividend Contenders (10-24 years).

This is Part 2, in which I'm covering the Dividend Challengers (5-9 years). No fewer than ten Dividend Challengers announced double-digit percentage increases, with Popular (BPOP) topping the list with a whopping 33% increase!

BPOP, through its subsidiaries, provides various retail, mortgage, and commercial banking products and services. The company offers various deposit, loan, and insurance products in Puerto Rico, New York, New Jersey, Florida and in the Virgin Islands. BPOP announced a spectacular increase of 33% and now yields 3.33 % at $47.98 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.

  1. Hi,

    I really like your tables (Portfolio Statistics and Holdings). Do they fill automatically or do you have to put in the received Dividends manually?

    Best regards,

    1. There is no trustworthy online source available to pull dividends from, that I'm aware of. At least not one that is freely available or reasonably priced. So yes, I enter dividends manually. I takes a few hours every month.

    2. You're welcome! Take care and happy investing!
