  • This article provides a summary of recent dividend increases.
  • I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks in the CCC list of dividend growth stocks.
  • Part 1 covers dividend increases announced for stocks in the Industrials and Financials sectors.
  • Part 2 will cover dividend increases of stocks in the remaining sectors.

I monitor dividend increases because it helps me to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise their dividend payments show confidence in future earnings growth potential.

I look for dividend increase announcements for stocks in the CCC List, but I use several screens to limit the number of stocks to monitor:

  • Dividend Yield ≥ 1.0%
  • Market cap ≥ $1 billion
  • No stocks that are being acquired
  • No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks

This past week, 27 companies that announced dividend increases passed these screens.

The table below presents a summary of increases announced for stocks in the Industrials and Financials sectors. See Part 2 for coverage of the remaining sectors.

The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, unless otherwise indicated. Yield is the new dividend yield for the market close Price on the date listed. Yrs are years of consecutive dividend increases, while 5-yr DGR is the compound annual growth rate of the dividend over a 5-year period. 1-yr %Incr is the percentage increase from the year-ago dividend (Some companies increase their dividends more than once a year, so this puts the most recent dividend increase in context).
