Dividend Increases: November 12-23, 2018 (Part 2: Remaining Sectors)

Published Mon, 26 Nov 2018 04:34:43 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis. Companies can only raise their dividends regularly and sustainably if they grow earnings sufficiently.
I look for dividend increase announcements for stocks in the CCC List, but I use several screens to limit the number of stocks to monitor:
Dividend Yield ≥ 1.0% Market cap ≥ $1 billion No stocks that are being acquired No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks Recently, 9 companies that announced dividend increases passed these screens, including 1 of the stocks I own. Part 1 of this article covered dividend increases of stocks in the Consumer Discretionary, Consumer Staples, and Utilities sectors. In Part 2, I'm covering the remaining sectors.
The following table provides a summary of these increases.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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).
