As part of my monitoring process, I review the list of dividend increases every week. This exercise helps me to monitor existing holdings and also identify companies for further research.

Dividend increases reflect company’s confidence in their business and strategic plans. A solid dividend policy of sharing a portion of earnings drives value for shareholders.
