week, increasing the payout by nearly 4%.

It was a quiet week for dividend growth stocks, with only 5 companies announcing regular payouts and only one increasing its regular dividends.  Among them was the maker of Post-It Notes, with 56 consecutive years of dividend increases, announcing its next quarterly dividend payment.

Note: I will be taking a break from blogging and the newsletter over the Memorial Day holiday and for the next two weeks.  The next Dividend Growth Stocks Week in Review will be published on June 5th.
