Dividend Increases, dividend increases, dividend increases. Man, this is the exciting announcement that all of us dividend growth investors eagerly await. A dividend increase is one of the best benefits of a dividend growth investor and can come in all shapes and sizes. Since we are constantly tracking the companies in our portfolio, each month, we prepare a listing of dividend increases that we are expected to receive from companies in our portfolio and several Dividend Aristocrats that we do not hold. Now, it is time to dive in and see which companies we expect to increase their quarterly dividend in May 2017.
I alluded to this fact in my article last month, but I have now officially completed a 12 month cycle in my expected dividends increases article! This has been one of our more consistent articles in our one year of blogging and I have enjoyed summarizing Dividend Aristocrats that are expected to announce dividend increases in the upcoming month. Why? Because it has introduced me to many new dividend paying stocks that I never considered before because either the yield is too low or they do not receive the same coverage as your Walmarts, PGs, JNJs, etc. So now that we completed one 12-month cycle, let’s begin a new chapter and review Dividend Aristocrats that are expected to announce a dividend increase in June 2015!
