47 Dividend Hikes Expected By The End Of November – Seeking Alpha

47 Dividend Hikes Expected By The End Of November – Seeking Alpha: In compiling the Dividend Champions list (found here) I get to see which companies are nearing the anniversaries of their previous dividend increases. Since most of these firms raise their payout about the same time every year, I can say with some confidence that they are likely to do so again.

Beyond Thanksgiving

In recent articles in this series, I have shown companies expected to increase their dividends soon, up to 10 weeks ahead of their Ex-Dividend Date. But, as SA Contributor Clay King mentioned in the comments to my previous update (here), McDonald’s (MCD) is expected to announce its next increase in a couple of weeks, more than two months before its Ex-Dividend Date. So I’ve extended the “forward look” to more than 11 weeks for this article, although I will probably return to the 10-week pattern for my next update.
