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.
This article was co-produced with James Marino Sr. of Portfolio Insight.

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).
Last week, 16 companies in Dividend Radar decided to increase their dividends, including three of the stocks I hold in my portfolio. There was also a dividend cut announced last week. The following table presents a summary of the dividend increases.
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.
