dividend growth stocks, I would likely be retired now. The compounding power of growing dividends is tremendous.
Below are several companies that are demonstrating the power of compounding dividends by increasing their cash dividends:
Cummins Inc. (CMI) designs, manufactures, distributes, and services diesel and natural gas engines, and engine-related component products. July 8th the company increased its quarterly dividend 25% to $0.78 per share. The dividend is payable September 2, 2014 to stockholders of record on August 22, 2014. The yield based on the new payout is 2.0%.
Healthcare Services Group, Inc. (HCSG), provides housekeeping, laundry, linen, facility maintenance, and dietary services to nursing homes, retirement complexes, rehabilitation centers and hospitals. July 8th the company increased its quarterly dividend 0.7% to $0.17375 per share. The dividend is payable September 26, 2014 to stockholders of record on August 22, 2014.

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.
