In a low-interest rate environment, dividends are always a topic of interest. Investors are seeking them out, and advisors are looking for information. We've done our share of articles on dividends, and we continue that coverage here with a listing of the biggest percentage increases in dividends over the past three years.
We started with the companies in the S&P 500, and listed those with the biggest percentage dividend increases from 2012 to 2015. (For 2015, we used the 12-month period ending Oct. 31, 2015.)
