fdx Top 10 Dividend Increases in the First Half of 2013Dividend Increase: 7%

Transportation, logistics and ecommerce giant Federal Express (FDX) is a bit of a laggard in our first-half group, with a single-digit increase that provides investors with a 15-cents-per-share-per-quarter payout, and a minuscule 0.61% dividend payout. The company’s been paying out an incrementally increasing dividend since 2002, so its unlikely it will reduce it in 2014 … but the company is undergoing some structural changes, with 3,600 employees accepting a “voluntary retirement” package and the company retiring 10 aircraft from its fleet. The streamlining is expected to boost revenue in 2014, but the jury is still out on stock performance.
