Dividends4Life: Companies Expected to Boost Dividends in the Next 60 Days

In compiling the Dividend Champions list I get to see which companies are nearing the anniversaries of their previous dividend increases. Since most of these firms raise their payout about the same time every year, I can say with some confidence that they are likely to do so again.

This is the third article in the new twice-monthly format, which extended the forward look to a period of about eight weeks. The previous article appeared on April 26th. Of the companies mentioned in that article, 19 have announced dividend increases, including such familiar names as ExxonMobil (XOM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), PepsiCo (PEP), and International Business Machines (IBM). The new format leads to some carry-over in the listings, but is designed to help avoid having companies failing to be mentioned simply because they fall in between monthly articles. But there were still a few companies that announced increases as much as two months before the next Ex-Dividend Date, so I'm extending the “forward look” to 60 days and, if necessary, could aim for nine or even ten weeks. :
