  • This article series provides a weekly summary of dividend increases, cuts, and suspensions.
  • A summary table provides relevant data and key statistics of dividend increases.
  • A table of ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks is included, and we highlight an interesting candidate.

This article was co-produced with James Marino Sr of Portfolio Insight.

We monitor dividend increases for stocks using Dividend Radar, a weekly automatically generated spreadsheet listing stocks with dividend streaks of five years or more. The Dividend Radar spreadsheet separates stocks into categories based on the length of the streak: Champions (25+ years), Contenders (10-24 years), and Challengers (5-9 years).

This week, four companies in Dividend Radar decided to increase their dividends, including one of the stocks in DivGro. One company suspended its dividend.

Dividend Increases

The following table provides a summary of dividend increases.

The table is sorted into sections for Champions, Contenders, and Challengers, and then 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. Some companies increase their dividends more than once a year, so the last column (1-yr DGR) gives an indication of how the dividend has changed in the past year on a trailing basis.
