    • Markit Dividend Forecasting is expecting big things from a handful of companies this quarter: namely double-digit increases in their dividends.
    • The firms aren't necessarily in the dividend-yield vanguard, but they are expected to make big increases, led by Vulcan Materials (VMC -2.9%) -- for which Markit is forecasting a 25% hike.
    • A 15% increase of the dividend at Cisco Systems (CSCO +0.2%), meanwhile, would give it the highest yield of the companies Markit discusses, at 3.9%. "We expect Cisco Systems to increase its quarterly dividend by 15% to $0.30 in its next announcement," Markit says. "The company has grown the dividend by an average of 15% resulting in an average payout ratio of 37% in the last three years."
    • Other double-digit increases are expected at TJX (TJX -0.2%), which it expects will go up by 16% to $0.30; Home Depot (HD -0.3%), for which Markit's forecasting a near-14% increase to $0.79; and Comcast (CMCSA +0.2%), which it expects will raise to $0.31.
