Dividend Increases This Week (Feb 4 - Feb 8)

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.
