    Bemis (NYSE:BMS) raised its quarterly dividend 4%

    Diebold (NYSE:DBD) raised its quarterly dividend 1%

    EMS-Chemie Holding AG raised its dividend 43%

    Limited Brands (LTD) raised its quarterly dividend 20%

    L-3 Communications (NYSE:LLL) raised its quarterly dividend 10%

    MasterCard (NYSE:MA) doubled its quarterly dividend

    Polaris Industries Inc. has approved a 14% increase in its regular cash dividend

    Schweitzer-Mauduit (NYSE:SWM) doubled its dividend

    3M (NYSE:MMM) raised its quarterly dividend 8%
