Dividend growth investing is a popular model followed by the investing community to build assets. Companies which not only pay dividends, but raise them year after year have been shown to perform better overall for investor returns.
As part of my due diligence, I closely monitor all companies that raise dividends (or cut them) and this article shares the dividend amount changes announced by companies.
Note that only companies with a market cap of $2B+ are included, as the list of small/micro cap companies is too long to include here.
February 2017 dividend raises and cuts can be found here.
Raises and cuts from 2016 can be found in this document.
If you are interested in getting regular updates on dividend raises and cuts, be sure to follow Dividend Growth Info.
The start of the year is a busy time for companies to announce dividend increases and send more cash towards customers. February, like previous years, was a great month for dividend raises. Dividend raises were noted from companies such as: Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE: ADM), Church & Dwight (NYSE: CHD), Gilead Sciences (Nasdaq: GILD), 3M Co (NYSE: MMM), Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE: BIP), Corning Inc (NYSE: GLW), BCE Inc (NYSE: BCE), United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS), Dr Pepper Snapple (NYSE: DPS), Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG), Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO), PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP), Royal Bank of Canada (NYSE: RY), and many more.
