There were several companies over the past week, which raised dividends to shareholders. I isolated six of those companies, which have managed to increase dividends for at least a decade.
In general, I look for companies that:
1) Have raised dividends for at least a decade
2) Have managed to grow earnings per share over the past decade
3) Are available at attractive valuations
This is a quick and dirty method that I use to determine if a company is worthy of further research or whether I should throw it away from further consideration.

Over time, a conservative dividend growth based investment strategy usually does quite well versus the market as a whole. My goal as a dividend growth stocks investor is to build a steadily increasing income and not necessarily to outperform the market via capital gains. But given the choice, I certainty don't mind having both.
Below are several dividend stocks building shareholder returns with higher cash dividends...

The internet provides investors with so much useful and interesting information. I could not imagine going back a decade or so and trying to analyze stocks without the internet - waiting for quarterly reports to be mailed for owned companies and calling the investor relations contacts for information on unowned companies. One of my job responsibilities is the statutory reporting for the corporation I work for.

Benjamin Graham taught that Intelligent Investors must do a thorough fundamental analysis of investment opportunities to determine their intrinsic value and inherent risk. This is best done by utilizing a systematic approach to analysis that will provide investors with a sense of how a specific company compares to another company or by reviewing the 10 Stocks for Using A Benjamin Graham Value Investing Strategy - January 2017.

I evaluated 53 different companies this week to determine whether they are suitable for Defensive Investors, those unwilling to do substantial research, or Enterprising Investors, those who are willing to do such research. I also put each company through the ModernGraham valuation model based on Benjamin Graham's value investing formulas in order to determine an intrinsic value for each. Out of those 53 companies, only 15 were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors.

A stock with a high yield doesn’t mean much if the dividend is cut or eliminated, and the stock price declines significantly. Sometimes it is desirable to accept higher risk for a higher yield. Other times we may be accepting higher risk and are not being adequately compensated for the additional risk. One measure of dividend sustainability is the ability of management to consistently raise their dividends each year.
Below are several companies raising the dividend growth bar one year by increasing cash dividends paid to their shareholders...
