Upcoming Ex-Dividend Dates: July 29-August 11, 2022

This article series compiles a list of upcoming ex-dividend dates of stocks in Dividend Radar, a spreadsheet containing stocks with dividend increase streaks of five years or more.

We provide a summary table that includes relevant data and key statistics as well as the next payout and pay date. Also, we highlight one of the stocks with an upcoming ex-dividend date, providing a quality assessment as well as performance, earnings, and valuation charts.

To earn the next dividend, be sure to buy a stock before its ex-dividend date, which usually is one business day before the record date. Unfortunately, if you wait until the ex-dividend date or thereafter, you won't receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller will receive the next dividend.

Why Texas Instruments Is A Buy For Dividend Growth Investors

I consider Texas Instruments (TXN) one of the best dividend growth stocks to own. 

The company pays a generous dividend yielding 2.76% at $164 per share and has a stellar track record of dividend growth and share buybacks. While I expect a lower dividend growth rate of 10-12% going forward, that rate still easily outpaces the current rate of inflation, especially when reinvesting dividends. 

Texas Instruments has a great management team focused on growing free cash flow as the primary driver of long-term value. The team is disciplined in allocating capital and is a top performer when measured by returns on invested capital. The company is well-positioned to benefit from a rapidly growing semiconductor industry, especially in the industrial and automotive markets in which the company leads with market share in analog and embedded systems.

Welcome to another edition of my monthly series of 10 Dividend Growth Stocks. In this series, I rank a selection of dividend growth stocks in Dividend Radar and present the ten top-ranked stocks for further research and possible investment. 

To rank stocks, I determine quality scores using DVK Quality Snapshots and sort them in descending order, breaking ties with additional metrics.

This month, I'm presenting discounted stocks with high 5-year dividend growth rates [DGRs] and high 5-year trailing total returns [TTRs]. Every stock trades at least 10% below my risk-adjusted Buy Below prices.

7 Dividend Growth Stocks For July 2022

In my monthly 7 Dividend Growth Stocks series, I present seven dividend growth stocks from Dividend Radar for further analysis and possible investment. 

I apply different screens every month to find a variety of candidates. For example, screening for stocks with higher yields will interest income investors, while screening for higher dividend growth rates will interest growth-oriented investors.

Last month, I picked the top dividend growth [DG] stock in each of the GICS sectors. I focused on DG stocks with safe dividends and strong income and growth prospects trading below my fair value estimates. For this article, I’m using the same screens, but I’m presenting the seven top-ranked stocks regardless of sector.

Monthly Review Of DivGro: June 2022

Welcome to the monthly review of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. 

The goal of these monthly reviews is to share updates I've made to the portfolio and to provide a summary of dividends collected. I also look at how DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI) has changed.

In June, I added shares to three existing positions and eight DivGro stocks announced dividend increases. The net result of these changes is that PADI increased by about 1.1% in June. Year over year, PADI increased by 28.1%.

As for dividend income, in June I received dividends totaling $5,678 from 51 stocks in my portfolio, a year-over-year increase of 7%. So far in 2022, I've collected $24,267 in dividends, or about 56% of my 2022 goal of $43,200.
