    1. Hello TDK, the list is very useful to me too. It helps me finds stocks that I would not have considered. I am very tempted to get into TROW.

  5. It's an interesting group of companies you have there Geek.

    You have some of the old and most reliable dividend growth companies like CLX, SHW, KO, ABBV, and TROW. That tells me you want your dividends to be reliable, growing, and predictable.

    But then you have companies like DNB. From dividend perspective, DNB doesn't look that great. <2% dividend, BB+ credit rating, 200% Debt/Cap and a spotty dividend payout history with low single digit growth.

    I don't know the company, just read a little about them, but just looking at the fundamentals wondering what you are seeing in it?

    Is DNB a future play in big data analytics with AI? They sure have been around for a while, but I'm surprised I haven't heard of them before. It's a decent size company too.

    1. Hello Mr.ATM thanks for swinging by. These are a list of dividend achievers with dividend increase this week. As a matter of fact I don't own any of these. More like a compilation post. I agree with your points. I would not buy DNB ... nevertheless it is a dividend achiever. Perhaps I should add a line saying I have no positions in these stocks.

  6. Those are some solid companies! Coca Cola, Clorox, etc.

    I like your Simply Wall Street pictures, I have never been on that website before.

    Do you get charged withholding taxes on your Canadian dividend company dividends?

    1. Hell GYM, I don't own any of the Canadian stocks. To answer your other question, RA or 401(k) Canadian holdings are not subject to dividend withholding (true only for Canada). For taxable account it is possible to take a tax credit.
