Selected Dividend Increases in July

Several Dividend Aristocrats have increased or decreased their dividends in July. The companies are listed below.

Expected dividend increases in August

Based off historical information from this spreadsheet, I would expect that only DOV will increase its dividend in August.
These dividend aristocrats have increased their dividends during every month of February over the past 4 years. 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 company that has increased its dividend twice in one year is STT- State Street.

  1. Hi,
    Have you considered graphing dividend income combined with stock income to get the real rate of return?
    Example if the stock goes down , the dividend tries to nullify the same.

  2. Tapan,

    I haven't considered doing that. In the dividend studies that I conduct on individual stocks I use a price chart of the stock for the past ten years, which should be similar to the "stock income" or the stock price appreciation that you are referring to.
    However dividend income is much more stable and predictable that stock price appreciation/depreciation.

    Thanks for stopping by!
