10-Year Dividend Growers with dividend increase (Nov 27 - Dec 1)


One way to identify dividend growth stocks is to look for dividend increases. Companies that pay rising dividends are likely to be financially healthy and generate consistent cash flow. I am interested in stocks with at least ten consecutive years of increasing annual regular dividend payments. Here is a list of such companies that increased their dividends last week.







McCormick & Company, Incorporated (MKC), +10.64% dividend increase

McCormick & Company, Incorporated has declared quarterly dividend of $0.52(+10.64% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 12/28/2017 and is payable on 1/16/2018. Annualized dividend is $1.88 at a yield of 1.83%.


J & J Snack Foods (JJSF), +7.14% dividend increase

J & J Snack Foods has declared quarterly dividend of $0.45(+7.14% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 12/12/2017 and is payable on 1/4/2018. Annualized dividend is $1.68 at a yield of 1.12%.

    1. For sure. Hopefully my Q4 dividends will get a bump from these dividend increases. I need to get my tires replaced, hoping dividend will be sufficient to do that.

  2. Geek, MKC is certainly a high quality stock I have considered owning many time, but never have. JJSF looks like an interesting small cap option based on the metrics you provide. Tom

    1. JJ looks enticing. I don't like their P/E ratio.But otherwise looks good. It is a part of VIG.

  3. It's always nice to see new DGI ideas that I don't already have. It's also funny how the spice trade has been going on for 5,000 years, and now we can buy a few shares of MKC to get in on the action. Thanks for the write up.

    1. Hello DD. Welcome to my blog. Indeed, instead of owning commodities we own companies which produce these commodities. I definitely think it is better this way. I believe Buffet would agree :-)
