Dividend Challengers: 22 Increases Expected By November 30 [Visa Inc, Yum! Brands, Inc., Accenture Plc, Covidien plc, The Kroger Co., DeVry Inc., Pall Corporation, A. Schulman Inc] – Seeking Alpha

Dividend Challengers: 22 Increases Expected By November 30 [Visa Inc, Yum! Brands, Inc., Accenture Plc, Covidien plc, The Kroger Co., DeVry Inc., Pall Corporation, A. Schulman Inc] – Seeking Alpha: In compiling the Dividend Champions list 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. I have modified the Expected Increase series to reflect a more SA-friendly format by separating the Champions (25 or more years of higher dividends), Contenders (10-24 years), and Challengers (5-9 years) into distinct groupings, so please look for the other articles, which I hope will be published about the same time.

Dividend Challengers Smackdown XL – Seeking Alpha: Dividend Challengers Smackdown XL

In the most recent installments of the Smackdown series, I screened the Dividend Champions (which can be found here: http://dripinvesting.org/Tools/Tools.asp ) by high Dividend Growth and Estimated 5-year Earnings per Share Growth (using a 6% threshold for both) and, last month, by the Past 5 Years of Earnings per Share Growth and the 5-year Dividend Growth Rate.

(Note that I have separated the Champions, Contenders, and Challengers into different articles to fit more closely into the format preferred by Seeking Alpha. Champions are companies that have paid higher dividends for at least 25 straight years; Contenders have streaks of 10-24 years; Challengers have streaks of 5-9 years. “CCC” refers to the combination of all three groups. I use the same Roman numeral for all three articles.)
