Dividend Increases: April 22-26, 2019 (Remaining Sectors)

Published Mon, 29 Apr 2019 08:15:00 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch is one way to identify candidates for further analysis. Companies that regularly raise dividends show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings.
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 ≥ $1 billion No stocks that are being acquired No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks This past week, 26 companies that announced dividend increases passed these screens, including 2 of the stocks I own.
The following table provides a summary of increases announced for stocks in all sectors except the Industrials and Financials sectors. Please see Part 1 for coverage of those sectors.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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).
