It is time to discuss the expected dividend increases in April 2021.

Why Dividend Increases Matter

Dividends are the foundation of our goal to reach financial freedom. We continuously invest in dividend growth stocks to grow our passive income. If you haven’t figured it out by now, we eat, sleep, and breathe dividends!

If the goal is to produce a passive income stream that will one day cover our expenses, making sure that income stream GROWS is critical. Without growth, your dividend income stream will lose purchasing power to inflation. Inflation is typically between 2%-3% annually; therefore, if you cannot achieve average dividend growth of at least that percentage, your income stream will be able to cover less, and less, over time.

That is why dividend growth is a major deciding factor in all of our stock purchase decisions. It is the 3rd metric of our Dividend Stock Screener for a reason. For each stock, we review a company’s history of increasing dividends (consecutive annual dividend increases) and a company’s five-year average dividend growth rate!

We cover dividend news extensively on our Youtube Channel. Each week, we discuss the major dividend increases from the week before. Heck, each month, we even bring this article to life and cover the major expected dividend increases of the coming month.

What a Difference A Year Makes

I want to take a step back for a second. Let's talk about how different things are in April 2021 than they were compared to April 2020, from a dividend investors standpoint.

Last year, at this time, it was pure chaos. Economic relief was being discussed and finalized and the stock market was recovering from the sudden falls that left us investors shocked and stunned.

Dividend cuts and dividend suspensions were the norm. Especially in the hardest-hit sectors from the economic shutdown such as retail. For a few months, dividend cuts in our portfolio outpaced dividend increases. Of course, this was nothing compared to what was happening in the rest of the world. But as a dividend investor, it wasn’t a lot of fun to watch happen.

Now, 12 months later, dividend increases are ROARING back. Trillions of dollars have been pumped into the economy via economic stimulus. Meanwhile, companies have been increasing their dividend at a record pace. We truly look forward to reading the news every day and covering all the companies in our portfolio.
