March 2019 was a mixed, but tilting negative month for U.S. dividend-paying firms. The month ending the first calendar quarter of 2019 saw fewer companies increase their dividends month-over-month (February 2019) and year-over-year (March 2018), but increased quarter-over-quarter (2018-Q4).

In March 2019, 4,314 U.S. firms declared dividends, an increase of 664 over the 3,650 recorded in February 2019. That figure is also down by 78 from March 2018's year-ago total. 31 U.S. firms announced they would pay an extra, or special, dividend to their shareholders in March 2019, a decrease of 11 from the number recorded in February 2019, and also a decrease of 5 from the total recorded a year earlier in March 2018. A total of 151 U.S. firms announced they would increase their dividend payments to shareholders in March 2019, a decrease of 141 from the number recorded in February 2019, and a decrease of 16 from the 167 dividend rises declared back in March 2018. A total of 45 publicly traded companies cut their dividends in March 2019, an increase of 14 over the number recorded in February 2019, but a decrease of 47 from the 92 recorded in March 2018.
