Expected Dividend Increases in June for my Vrijheid Fonds.
If you have visited Polliesdividend more often, you know that I track the dividend increases of the companies in my Vrijheid Fonds. There have been quite a few dividend increases announced so far in 2019 for my Vrijheid Fonds. The counter is now on 17 announcements already!! It definitely has been a fun time to be a dividend growth investor. In this post I try to summarize as many companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month.
Why you ask? I find it fun to track the dividend increases because I like companies that regularly increase their dividend. I believe that companies can only increase their dividends regularly if they grow earnings sufficiently. And it is the most outward sign by management as to how business is going. These companies show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings. And that are the kind of companies I like in my Vrijheid Fonds.
But before I take a look at the month of June, just let us first look back at the previous month. Well I can be very short about the dividend increases in the month of May. I was spot on with my expectations and predictions; I didn’t receive a single dividend increase announcement.
Here are my predictions for the dividend increases I expect in June:
Target is a dividend king, with more than 50 years of increases. It is every DGI’s dream. Target had a good year (2018) so hopefully they will raise the dividend a little bit more than the last two years.

I looked on the Internet and in their latest company financial information. On the basis of my own little research I expect the increase to be a little bit more than last years increase. Target has a good payout ratio, which gives room for an increase.
Current Dividend Yield: 3.18%
Prediction quarterly dividend: 2.0% – 6.0% increase to $0.66-0.68
Realty Income (O)
This Dividend Aristocrat has 25 years of uninterrupted dividend increases. Realty income, the monthly dividend company, rewards its investors with a couple of increases every year. From my experiences it is fair to say that the increase announcements in June aren’t the biggest every year. So in my opinion Realty Income is not likely to reward investors with a massive bump in June of this year.

I looked on the Internet and in their latest company financial information. On the basis of my own little research I expect the increase to be around the same as the last couple of years. This company is very predictable, and I like it!
Current Dividend Yield: 3.92%
Prediction quarterly dividend: 0.1% – 0.3% increase to $0.2262-0.2267
I’m excited how my predictions will turn out. I’m expecting just two dividend increase announcement in May. Next month I will write a review and look back at my predictions. I can’t wait for the month June and the dividend increases that will be announced. I’m always excited about new dividend increases. I hope that I’m as right as my predictions for this month 😉
Which dividend increase are you expecting?
