Hundreds and thousands of companies pay dividends on a regular basis so simply paying a dividend is of little interest to me when trying to sort through so many companies. What I'm interested in are the companies that raise their dividends. And of particular interest are those companies that significantly increase their dividends. Discovering that information grabs my attention and signals to me that further investigation into the fundamentals of the company is necessary.
While I review lists of dividend increases on a regular basis, I recently decided to include these lists into the stream of articles under the "Investing" section of my website. This quickly started to take over this section and interfere with the investing ideas that were suppose to occupy that space.
As a result, I have added an additional drop down under the "Investing" menu above titled "Dividend Increases". You can also get there by clicking on the button below. Dividend Growth Investors will appreciate this new section because dividends are an important part of their selection process. The fact that a company is raising its dividend is key to the dividend growth model. Hopefully by segregating these they will be more accessible to me and I will be able to study them in more depth. I find these lists to be very helpful in trying to identify new candidates for accumulation. If this helps anyone else, all the better.
