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.

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, eight companies in Dividend Radar announced dividend increases, including one of the stocks I hold in my portfolio. The following table provides a summary.
Please note there were no announcements of dividend cuts or suspensions 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 dividend's compound annual growth rate 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.
