3 Companies With Recent Dividend Increases: Review Using Dividend Safety Model - February 2017

Published Sun, 12 Feb 2017 14:56:15 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

Every week there are dozens of companies that increase their dividend payout. For this series, we select companies that are relatively large and stable (market cap greater than $10 Billion) and have at least 7-10 years (preferably more) of dividend history. We exclude the companies that are structured as either REITs (Real Estate Investment Trust), mREITs (Mortgage REIT), or BDCs (Business Development Co).
The companies that are selected may be from different sectors/industries, so we are not aiming for an apple-to-apple comparison. Nonetheless, we attempt to compare the reliability and safety of their dividends and provide their general growth trends on EPS, Revenue, and Free Cash Flow.
For a dividend investor, it is important to look at the company's ability to pay and increase their dividends year after year on a continual basis. That is why we use our "Dividend Safety model" to derive a dividend safety score providing us a relative comparison. For this week, we will compare the following three companies that raised their dividends recently.
