Companies can only increase their dividends regularly if earnings grow sufficiently. I monitor dividend increases of stocks in the CCC list of dividend growth stocks. I use the following screens to compile my watch list:
Market cap ≥ $500M No stocks that are being acquired. No over-the-counter or pink sheet stocks Dividend Yield ≥ 2% for Challengers Dividend Yield ≥ 1% for Contenders and Champions This past week, 32 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including 5 of the stocks I own.
The following table provides a summary of dividend increases for stocks in the Financials sector. Part 2 will present dividend increases for the Energy and Utilities sectors. Finally, Part 3 will cover the remaining sectors.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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).
