Dividend Increases: October 28-November 1, 2019

Published Wed, 06 Nov 2019 09:42:15 -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 increase their dividends regularly and sustainably if they grow earnings sufficiently.
The Dividend Champions List [CCC list] is my primary watch list. Previously, I applied several screens to reduce the number of stocks under consideration, but now I monitor the entire list.
Last week, 19 companies in the CCC list announced dividend increases, including two of the stocks I hold in my portfolio. The following table provides a summary.
The table is sorted by the percentage increase, %Incr. Dividends are annualized and in US$. 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.
Some companies increase their dividends more than once a year, so the last column (1-yr %Incr) indicates the percentage increase from the year-ago dividend.
