Daily dividend news for investors in dividend stocks


Upcoming Dividends; 89 Companies, 32 Increases, 14 Double-Digit Increases

Published Thu, 22 Feb 2018 10:00:26 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

Introduction The information presented below was created based on combining the "U.S. Dividend Champion" spreadsheet compiled by David Fish hosted here with upcoming dividend information from the Nasdaq. This meshes metrics about companies with dividend growth history with upcoming dividend payments (and whether those payments are increasing). These lists highlights the companies with a minimum 5-year dividend growth history.
What David has done is exhaustively map the companies that have dividend increasing history in comparison with the Dividend Aristocrats. Long story short, there are companies that raise their dividends every year and do not appear on the S&P list. See David Van Knapp's 2009 article covering this phenomenon.
What this provides is an opportunity for an investor to buy more shares prior to an upcoming ex-dividend date. I'm not suggesting a short-term dividend capture strategy but rather getting shares or increasing a stake prior to the market readjusting to the new, higher dividend rate. If you are looking to own shares short term, be aware you may be on the hook for a tax for the dividend.
The ex-dividend date listed is the date you need to have hit the "buy" button by. If the date is a Tuesday, you need to have purchased (or already owned) shares by market close on Monday. Be aware that for any stock going ex-dividend on a Monday (or Tuesday if Monday may be a holiday), you must own it by the prior Friday.
