24 Dividend Increases: January 29-February 2, 2018 (Part 2: Remaining Sectors)

I monitor dividend increase announcements for stocks on my watch list. It is one way I look for candidates for my DivGro portfolio. Companies can only raise their dividends regularly if earnings grow sufficiently.

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

Part 1 covered dividend increases from the Energy and Real Estate sectors. This is Part 2, which covers 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 is from SJW Corp (SJW), a water utility services provider based in San Jose, California. The company increased its dividend by an impressive 29% and now yields 2.00% at $58.92 per share.

There are four other stocks that announced double-digit percentage increases. To see details of these stocks and the other dividend increases, 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.
