Dividend Increases This Week (Apr 9 - Apr 13)

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



Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (EPD) , +0.71% dividend increase

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has declared quarterly dividend of $0.4280 (+0.7059% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 04-27-2018 and is payable on 05-08-2018. Annualized dividend is $1.712 at a yield of 6.6382%. Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has 19 years of consecutive dividend increase.



Procter & Gamble Company (PG) , +3.91% dividend increase

Procter & Gamble Company has declared quarterly dividend of $0.7170 (+3.9130% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 04-19-2018 and is payable on 05-15-2018. Annualized dividend is $2.868 at a yield of 3.6642%. Procter & Gamble Company has 61 years of consecutive dividend increase.



Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (SKT) , +2.04% dividend increase

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. has declared quarterly dividend of $0.3500 (+2.0408% increase). It goes ex-dividend on 04-27-2018 and is payable on 05-15-2018.

  1. I was happy to hear that PG announced an increase in their dividend as I own that stock in my portfolio. I definitely agree that owning quality companies that have a history of raising there dividends is a key component of dividend growth investing. I'm a huge fan of Dividend Aristocrats but Dividend Achievers is also not a bad place to start.

    1. Dividend achievers become aristocrats some day :-) Aristocrats are too few and not enough to diversify. Achievers can help with that.

    1. What is the future of PG? PG is down 15%. Its one of the cheapest dividend kings to pick up.

  5. 61 years is an incredible track record for P&G - definitely no companies in the Australian market that come close to that! Doesn't look like to much of a stretch from a valuation perspective either - although your chart doesn't look too compelling from a future growth perspective?

    1. PG seems to have a track record of ups and downs. I don't know what the future holds. But at least from the past information i don't think its going to be down for too long. I heard they are having problems with Gillette sales. Too much competition from the likes of Dollar Shaving Club etc. Which by the way is amazing. No Ian this time around :-)
