Dividend Increases in February

Several Dividend Aristocrats have increased their dividends in February. The companies are:

From this list, the only company that fits my fundamental criteria is SHW, which has a one year dividend growth rate of 11.11%.

Expected dividend increases in March

Based off historical information from this spreadsheet, I would expect that the following companies increase their dividend in March: APD, CB, SNV, and WMT. These dividend aristocrats have last increased their dividend payments in March 2007. Upon a closer examination of the dividend growth stock behavior of the 60 dividend aristocrats, it seems that every month there is at least one company that raises its dividend. It’s nice to get a pay raise every month. The only dividend growth stock that has consistently increased its dividend twice in one year since 2003 is STT- State Street.
