10-Year Dividend Growers With Dividend Increases (Jan 29 - Feb 2, 2018)

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.



Aflac Incorporated (AFL) , +15.56% dividend increase

Aflac Incorporated has declared quarterly dividend of $0.5200 (+15.5556% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 02-20-2018 and is payable on 03-01-2018. Annualized dividend is $2.08 at a yield of 2.3191%.



California Water Service (CWT) , +4.17% dividend increase

California Water Service has declared quarterly dividend of $0.1875 (+4.1667% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 02-09-2018 and is payable on 02-23-2018. Annualized dividend is $0.75 at a yield of 1.8094%.



Chevron Corporation (CVX) , +3.7% dividend increase

Chevron Corporation has declared quarterly dividend of $1.1200 (+3.7037% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 02-15-2018 and is payable on 03-12-2018. Annualized dividend is $4.48 at a yield of 3.5677%.



SJW Group (SJW) , +27.27% dividend increase

SJW Group has declared quarterly dividend of $0.2800 (+27.2727% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 02-09-2018 and is payable on 03-01-2018. Annualized dividend is $1.12 at a yield of 1.8858%.



Avista Corporation (AVA) , +4.2% dividend increase

Avista Corporation has declared quarterly dividend of $0.3725 (+4.1958% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 02-22-2018 and is payable on 03-15-2018. Annualized dividend is $1.49 at a yield of 2.9752%.

  1. Thanks for the summary Geek. It's good to see the oil stocks like CVX and COP come out of their multi year dividend growth slump. Tom

    1. I agree. Still not sure if they will sustain it. Oil prices have recovered ... not sure how long it will sustain.

  2. Interesting overview. I have had Aflac on my watchlist for a while but never pulled the trigger. Thanks for sharing!

    1. AFL seems to be good. Its beaten S&P 500 consistently and P/E looks okay. I have always been interested but never ended up buying it.

  3. Nice to see a company I own on the dividend increase list. I have a sizable position in CVX so this should help dividend income a bit. Thanks for sharing.

    1. For sure. CVX looks awesome. Hopefully, oil prices go up a bit more. Dividends from CVX/XOM is sufficient to pay for gas at pump :-)
