4 Dividend Increases: September 10-14, 2018

Published Mon, 17 Sep 2018 07:48:36 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list is one way to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies can only increase their dividends regularly and sustainably if earnings grow sufficiently.
The CCC List provides a good starting point, but I limit the number of stocks to monitor by applying the following screens:
Dividend Yield ≥ 1.0% Market cap ≥ $1 billion No stocks that are being acquired No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks In the past week, 4 companies that declared dividend increases passed these screens.
The following table provides a summary of these increases.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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.)
