Summary

This is the list of dividend stocks from the popular U.S. Dividend Champion, Challenger, Contender ("CCC") list that are going ex-dividend next week.

The CCC list is the exhaustive list of U.S. companies that have a proven record of raising their dividends every year.

The data is provided by David Fish's U.S. Dividend Champion spreadsheet in conjunction with upcoming dividend information from the Nasdaq.

Additionally, I have many additional metrics for each company.

Introduction

The information presented below was created based on combining the "U.S. Dividend Champion" spreadsheet compiled by David Fish hosted here with upcoming dividend information from the Nasdaq. This meshes metrics about companies with dividend growth history with upcoming dividend payments (and whether those payments are increasing).

The first list below provides a set of upcoming dividend stock opportunities. These are the companies that have a minimum 5 year dividend growth history.

Additionally, it gives investors a chance to potentially buy more shares prior to an upcoming ex-dividend date. If it happens to be a dividend increase, that will be highlighted as well.

I have a second table that has some additional metrics and yearly pricing action for the list.

Lastly, I have included a table sorted by dividend yield since I know some investors need more current income. That table also includes historical dividend growth rates and the popular "Chowder Rule".

The data is sorted by the day (ascending) and then the streak (descending). Be aware that for any stock going ex-dividend on a Monday (or Tuesday if Monday may be a holiday), you must own it by the prior Friday. This is why the timeliness of this article is critical.

Tickers By Yield (With Growth Rates)

I know some people are interested in yield plays, so this table is sorted descending by yield. New for this week per a request, I have added the historical dividend growth rates for the company.

Additionally, the "Chowder Rule" has been included. That is the current yield + the 5 year dividend growth rate.
