3 Dividend Hikes

What can i say they rolled in for a few days one nice one and the other 2 ill take LOL.

Related imageFirst one was PPL  and it was a yawner.

The company demonstrated its continued commitment to dividend growth, announcing that it is increasing its common stock dividend to $0.4125 per share on a quarterly basis. The increased dividend will be payable April 1 to shareowners of record as of March 8, 2019. The increase, PPL’s 17th in 18 years, raises the annualized dividend from $1.64 per share to $1.65 per share. PPL has paid a dividend in every quarter since 1946.

I own 50 shares of PPL this will add $.50 to my dividends. The new year is looking good already one of the best starts I have had and it will only get better as more dividend increases come in. The goal one day is to have my dividends pay all my current and future bills right now most months would be covered on bills but in the future i will have more.

Walmart Inc. (WMT) said Tuesday it will raise its annual dividend by 2% to $2.12 a share, from $2.08 a share. The first quarterly dividend of the new annual rate will be payable April 1 to shareholders of record on March 15. Based on Friday’s stock closing price of $99.99, the new dividend implies a dividend yield of 2.12%, compared with the implied yields for the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) of 1.37% and for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (WMT) of 2.09%. The discount retail giant also reported fiscal fourth-quarter results (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/walmart-shares-rise-after- earnings-and-revenue-beats-expectations-2019-02-19) that beat expectations. The stock, which shot up 4.5% in premarket trade, has tacked on 3.3% over the past three months, while the retail ETF has lost 0.4% and the Dow has gained 3.5%

Since i own 20 shares of Walmart this is will add $.80 to my dividends.

ABBV Dividend Raise.

AbbV is a newer position to the protfolio and it raised its dividend quickly after i bought a few shares. I had bought a total of 16 shares by the time the raise was announced. Some headwinds have depressed the price but im cofident it is a strong company and will continue to pay dividends for years to come.

 

Now the details 16 shares times .11 equates to $1.76 a quarter or $7.04 a year.    Already getting raises for next year and will help out a lot.   Eventually these raises will help put me over the  crossing point to wear i wont have anything to worry about just kick back and collect the dividend.  This will take effect for the Feb 2019 dividend payment.
