Dividend Increases In Portfolio Per Company

Hello everybody hope you are all doing fantastic today. Today I thought I would write about how many dividend increases I have received within my portfolio. I got the idea from reading an article in The Globe and Mail a couple of weeks ago. The Globe and Mail is a national newspaper here in Canada, the article called My Dividend Portfolio Keeps Churning Out Cash written by John Heinzl mentions how many increases he has received since starting that Strategy Lab portfolio.

After going back and doing the research I was surprised by the amount of increases I have received. I became a dividend investor in July 2014 and in the past 22 months I have received 27 dividend increases from the company’s I own. I am averaging 1.2 increases per month, I can live with with getting a raise every month for doing nothing 🙂
Below is a list of stock I own and the amount of increases I have received to date.
Royal Bank 4
Bank of Montreal 3
Canadian Utilities 2
Fortis 2
Enbridge 2
Proctor & Gamble 2
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp 2
TransCanada 2
Magna 1
JP Morgan 1
Algonquin Power & Utilities 1
Telus 1
Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust 1
Chorus Aviation 1
Power Corp of Canada 0
Alimentation Couche-Tard 0
Westjet 0
Artis Real Estate Investment Trust 0
Boston Pizza Royalties Income Fund 0
The Keg Royalties Income Fund 0
North West Company Inc. 0
Leon’s Furniture 0
Inter Pipeline 0
Total 27

So how many increases have you guys received? Do you love dividend investing as much as I do?

Take care and thank you for reading.
