Dividend Increases This Week (May 7 - May 11)

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.

  1. Alas, I'm not invested in any of those companies Div Geek. But, I'm looking forward to the next company in my portfolio that chooses to raise its dividend.

  2. Nice list, but like DP I don't own any DG. I used to own MSA, but decided to sell it a couple years back. Tom
