24 Dividend Increases: January 29-February 2, 2018 (Part 1: Energy and Real Estate)

Companies can only raise their dividends regularly if they grow earnings sufficiently. One way to identify dividend growth stocks for further analysis is to monitor dividend increases.

This past week, 24 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases. One of these increases is from a stock I own.

Part 1 of this two-part article covers dividend increases from the Energy and Real Estate sectors. Part 2 will cover dividend increases from the remaining sectors.

As a bonus, I include a summary of available ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks.

The top increase in the Energy and Real Estate sectors is from Marathon Petroleum (MPC). The company increased its dividend by 15% and now yields 3.85% at $67.41 per share.

No other stocks announced double-digit percentage increases.

To see all the dividend increases in the Energy and Real Estate sectors, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

As a bonus, I'm including a summary of ex-dividend dates for the next two weeks. Scan the list of stocks to see if there's a stock you want to pick up before the ex-dividend date so you can grab the next dividend.

Please feel free to leave comments on this article either at Seeking Alpha or here, on my blog. I'll do my best to respond to each comment as quickly as possible.
