Texas Instruments Increases Its Dividend by 32%

Ani G Oct 31, 2016


Each day, companies across the globe announce new upcoming dividend payouts. In our Dividend Payout Changes and Announcement tool, you’ll find all of the dividend increases, decreases, initiations, suspensions, updates and regular dividend announcements for a given day.


Below we present an analysis of the stocks that increased dividends last week. The latest payout is compared to the most recent payout before the dividend increase.

Following is a snapshot of the 15 major stocks that increased dividends last week. If an investor simply purchases the stock prior to the ex-dividend date and then sells it either on the ex-dividend date or at some point afterward, he will be able to receive the dividend in his account.

To apply this strategy you need to know when stocks go ex-dividend. You can find out the latest ex-dividend dates for the stocks that interest you in our Ex-Dividend Date Search tool.
