Better than expected Q1 earnings beginning in early April, are setting the stage for markets to resume an upwards trend. Watershed changes to central bank policy and recovering oil prices have been adding to the enthusiasm.

Earnings to date for Q1-2018 have generally been favourable. Companies reporting so far within our coverage universe, have been exceeding expectations and raising dividends. For the 20 names that have been updated, 16 raised dividends and most all have a track record for increasing dividends. Using the sort capabilities in the High Yield section of IncomeResearch.ca and setting the criteria to "Last Update" provides a convenient and easy way to recall these names.

Favourable earnings results are not always enough to lift share prices; it also requires the right direction for interest rates. The improving outlook has become more evident when yet another central bank boss passed on raising interest rates.
