I have stated many times that my goal is to create an ever growing income stream from dividend growth stocks. Secondarily, it is my desire to beat the S&P 500 over time. With that said, I rarely look at the capital performance of individual stocks. What I do watch is the ability of the stocks I own to sustain their dividend growth.

This week several companies met their shareholders' goal of higher cash dividends:

Weyerhaeuser Company (WY), a forest products company, grows and harvests trees, builds homes, and manufactures forest products worldwide. August 15th the company increased its quarterly dividend 10% to $0.22 per share. The dividend is payable Sept. 13, 2013, to shareholders of record at the close of business on Aug. 30, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.2%.

Connecticut Water Service, Inc. (CTWS) operates as a regulated water company. August 15th the company increased its quarterly dividend 2.1% to $0.2475 per share. The dividend is payable September 16, 2013, for shareholders of record as of September 2, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.3%.

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (CNK) engages in motion picture exhibition business. August 15th the company increased its quarterly dividend 19% to $0.25 per share. the dividend is payable September 12, 2013 to stockholders of record on August 28, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.2%.

The yield based on the new payout is 2.0%.

Selecting stocks with increasing dividends is critical for an income growth strategy. The above list contains stocks that recently raised their dividends; it is not a list of recommend buys. As always, due diligence should be performed before buying or selling any stock. For a list of stocks with a long string of consecutive cash dividend increases, see this list.

Full Disclosure: No position in the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my dividend growth holdings here.
