I monitor dividend increases because it helps me to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise their dividend payments show confidence in future earnings growth potential.
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 ≥ $1 billion No stocks that are being acquired No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks This past week, 27 companies that announced dividend increases passed these screens.
The table below presents a summary of increases announced for stocks in the Industrials and Financials sectors. See Part 2 for coverage of the remaining sectors.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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).
