Dividend Increases: August 5-9, 2019

Monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list helps me identify candidates for further analysis. Companies can only raise their dividends regularly and sustainably if they grow earnings sufficiently
I use the CCC List as a starting point and apply the following screens:
Dividend Yield ≥ 1.0% Market cap ≥ $1 billion No stocks that are being acquired No Over-The-Counter or Pink Sheet stocks In the last week, 6 companies that announced dividend increases passed these screens.
The table below presents a summary of these increases.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$, 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.)
