Little Increases, Big Consistency
You know our feelings about small dividend increases being better than no increases and you know that we analyze a company's dividend history to get a handle on how reliable the current payout is. Dividend history is a good tell about what to expect in the future as well and that's why two small dividend increases announced earlier this week didn't surprise us much, but they're good news nonetheless.
Despite reporting less-than-stellar third-quarter results, industrial conglomerate Emerson Electric (NYSE: EMR) announced a 1.5% increase to its quarterly dividend. That's the 53rd consecutive year Emerson has raised its payout, good for one of the 10 longest increase streaks on Wall Street. The quarterly payout will now be 33.5 cents. The five-year dividend growth rate for Emerson is above 10% and since the company reported record free cash flow of over $1.2 billion in the third quarter, this payout is quite safe.
Aqua America (NYSE: WTR), one of America's largest water utilities, joined the party by boosting its quarterly dividend by a penny, or 7.4%, to 14.5 cents a share. The new dividend is payable on December 1 to shareholders of record on November 16. Aqua America currently yields 3.7% and has a five-year dividend growth rate of nearly 5.3%.
You may not have been a fan of history in school, but if Aqua America and Emerson are examples, and they are good ones, it pays to be a fan of dividend history.
