Two dividend growth companies announced their annual increases this week.  Both increases were modest, but kept the companies’ dividend streaks going.  Regional banking company Community Bank Systems extended their streak to 26 years, while utility MGE Energy now has 41 years of dividend growth under its belt.  Next week will be quiet, as the next company I’m tracking for an increase is Harris Corporation at the end of the month.
