Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list helps me to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly increase their dividends have confidence in their ability to grow future earnings.
My watch list contains CCC stocks that pass the following screens:
Market cap ≥ $500M No stocks that are being acquired. No over-the-counter or pink sheet stocks Dividend Yield ≥ 2% for Challengers Dividend Yield ≥ 1% for Contenders and Champions This past week, 32 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including 5 of the stocks I own.
In Part 1, I presented dividend increases from stocks in the Financials sector. Part 2, presents dividend increases from stocks in the Energy and Utilities sector. Part 3 will cover the remaining sectors.
The table below is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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).
