 Oh boy!  It's a new year and with that comes the annual horde of Dividend increases.

I love baby Yoda btw....

These increases are exactly why I invest in...drumroll....dividend growth stocks.  The magic of compounding begins and my return on my investment will grow year after year.  Here's an example:

If you had bought one share of Coca-Cola (KO) in 1919 for the $40 opening price, because of splits over the years, you would now have 9,216 shares.  With each share paying $1.64 cents in dividends per year, You would receive $15,114.24 annually (or a cool $3,778.56 every three months).   That's a 37,785% annual dividend payout yield. Wow.  I just like 5%

So increases are the center of the dividend investor universe.  And traditionally, December through February is the center of the  dividend hike season.

This January was no exemption.   I received 8 increases adding $38.59 in my annual dividends. Might not sound like much, but it really snowballs.

The big winner was Air Products and Chemicals (APD) and their 11.9% increase and wintrust Financial (WTFC) with a 10.7% hike.   

On a NSFW sidenote, I started looking at WTFC because the ticker symbol kind of sounded like "what the fuck"  👀....  And so I bought them.  

Overall, I had a 5.2% hike in dividends from these companies.  That's good stuff.  

Here's the breakdown!

And February will come the motherlode!   See ya then!
