buy-and-hold investors can do to profit from these irrational moves in the market, such as following a disciplined approach of acquiring stocks that routinely increase their dividends.
Below are several companies that are helping build shareholder wealth through higher their cash dividends:
The Female Health Company (FHCO) engages in the development, manufacture, marketing, and sale of consumer health care products. March 27th the company increased its quarterly dividend 17% to $0.07 per share. The dividend is payable May 8, 2013 to stockholders of record as of May 1, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.9%.
Camden National Corporation (CAC) operates as the holding company for Camden National Bank, which provides commercial and consumer banking products and services. March 26th the company increased its quarterly dividend 8% to $0.27 per share. The dividend is payable on April 30, 2013, for shareholders of record on April 16, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.2%.

Selecting stocks with increasing dividends is critical for an income growth strategy. The above list contains stocks that recently raised their dividends; it is not a list of recommend buys. As always, due diligence should be performed before buying or selling any stock. For a list of stocks with a long string of consecutive cash dividend increases, see this list.
Full Disclosure: No position in the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my dividend growth holdings here.
