Expected Dividend Increases in April 2020 (Hopefully)

My oh my.  What a difference a month makes.  In last month’s article, we discussed how dividend growth slowed and there may be an economic slowdown.  This month, it is a completely different story.  The coronavirus, COVID-19, pandemic has spread and the economic impact has been unlike anything I have ever seen.  The impact on individuals, small business and corporations is changing on a daily basis.  For many companies, they are rethinking their 2020 strategic visions and changing their dividends & capital strategies on the fly.  It will be tough to predict the expected dividend increases in 2020; however, we will highlight the companies that have historically announced dividend increases in April.

Expected Dividend Increases in February 2020

We are in the thick of winter here. Snow flurries are flying and temperatures are dropping.  The perfect time to sit inside with a warm cup of coffee, blog, and learn about dividend investing  Lanny just published an article explaining how dividends are taxed and the tax benefits of this passive income stream.  Lower tax rates are just another reason why we love dividend investing.   Another reason we love this investing strategy is because of the dividend increases.  We monitor each dividend increase like a hawk; we celebrate the strong increases and shake our heads after a disappointing increase.  That’s why each month, we publish an article exclusively focusing on the expected dividend increases in the coming month.  Here are the expected dividend increases in February.
