A summary table provides relevant data and key statistics of dividend increases.
We include a table of ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks, and we highlight an interesting candidate.

We monitor dividend increases for stocks using [Dividend Radar], a weekly automatically generated spreadsheet listing stocks with dividend streaks of five years or more. The Dividend Radar spreadsheet separates stocks into categories based on the length of the streak: Champions (25+ years), Contenders (10-24 years), and Challengers (5-9 years).
This week, six companies in Dividend Radar decided to increase their dividends, including one of my DivGro holdings. The table below presents a summary of these dividend increases.
Please note that no dividend cuts or suspensions were announced for Dividend Radar stocks last week.
The table is sorted into sections for Champions, Contenders, and Challengers, and then 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.
Some companies increase their dividends more than once a year, so the last column (1-yr DGR) indicates the percentage increase from the year-ago dividend.
