As Christmas is approaching, the sounds of the music rings in that the year is almost over. I am still sitting on a sizable cash position that I am looking to deploy into an undervalued dividend stock – the one with the right metrics, that shows undervaluation, is performing better than the past, etc. Furthermore, there are investors who have capital built up, including myself, and I never like to let cash sit idle.

In my attempt to find a consumer-based company, one that will generate significant volume and revenue when economic times are good and bad, I turned to an iconic branded company. This iconic branded company has been around for 130+ years and is also coined as one of the, “Dividend Aristocrats”, having increased their dividend for 25+ years. In fact, this iconic company has delivered a streak of 55+ years of increasing their dividend. Yes, I am talking about The Coca-Cola Company (KO).

Enough talk, let’s dive right in and summarize the companies that increased their dividend in January and which companies are expected to announce a dividend increase in February.
