There were eighteen consistent dividend growth stocks, which announced plans to boost distributions for their shareholders over the past week. Besides my screening process, my compilation of weekly dividend increases helps me stay up to date on any dividend and business developments for companies I own or for companies I might be interested in purchasing down the road. In this article, I focused only on companies which have been able to boost dividends for at least five years in a row. In the past, this process has helped me identify opportunities which I would have otherwise missed. It has also been instrumental in my accumulation of knowledge about companies, business and dividends in general.
