5 New Dividend Boosts Have Me All Smiles!

Thanks, have a great weekend!

Good article.  I like these kinds of articles, where expectations are compared with actual results.  Maybe this could evolve into a monthly update of expected dividend increases.  I know that David Fish puts out something similar on SA, but this is a different dividend resource, so it would have a different audience that could benefit from that.

Thanks, it was kind of a fun one to do. I'm working on the final update for it and comparing the 11 increases with my guesses.

Haven't decided if I will do it every month though, as I am working on getting updates put out for some more of my sector based watch lists (Discretionary and Healthcare).

So many things to write, so little time!

Great article, and I've owned NKE for a few years.  It's in the "growth" portion of my portfolio, along with DIS, V, etc.  Low yielders, sure, but the DGI and capital appreciation is great.

Thanks. I've been making a concerted effort of late to add more growth to my portfolio. I have most of my higher yielding positions filled out and I'll let them compound away, but with another 25 years to go I think its worth getting more of the double-digit growers into the mix. Some examples from the last year or so are BDX, CVS, LOW, NKE and I've also added BA, COR, DG, EXR, FB, HD, and VFC in another portfolio I own.

Still looking at potential future adds in companies like MA, TSCO, HRL, NEE, UNH, AOS, BLK, HAS, AWK and DIS.

That's exactly my plan.  At some point, I'll shift pooled dividends into higher yielders (3-5%, nothing crazy).

Good article, and this should be a great month for DGI'ers. Of the 5 main ones you identified, I own all but AAPL. I've always thought about jumping in but never have. I'm always scared that one bad product or shifting fads will crush them like Nokia, Blackberry, etc. Anyone have thoughts on AAPL?
