Always a shorter post, but a very important part of my investing strategy - dividend increases.
Just to lengthen this post, here's my sugar cookie art skill.
A rabid squirrel that just gave birth and is carrying its bloody newborn....
So here's a summary:
Amgen (AMGN) passed out a 10% dividend increase! BAM!
Realty Income (O) did their regular quarterly .2% increase and AES upped theirs by 5%.
This added $24.41 to my annual dividends.
In January, I'll be looking for an increase from Kimberly Clark (KMB), Intel (INTC), Archer-Daniels Midland (ADM), and Air Products and Chemicals (APD).
And I think my portfolio is safe from any more dividend cuts!
