Of special note this week is an article written by Thicken My Wallet on the topic of dividend growth companies who decide to forgo recent dividend increases. This is timely for me as I am still waiting for a dividend increase from Royal Bank and Home Depot (which probably won’t come). During the analysis of these stocks, it is important to understand why a dividend increase did not come. Only then should a decision be made. Dividends4Life echos my sentiment on the company in his post about the company. I personally am working through that with Home Depot!
