    General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) is increasing its quarterly dividend by 9.8%

    Zimmer Announced an 11% increase in its quarterly dividend

    Taubman Centers (NYSE:TCO) declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.50 per share, an increase of 8.1 percent.

    Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL) boosted its quarterly dividend by 10%
