A couple of days ago I published an article about Umicore, a Belgian company that offers an interesting mix of metal recycling (including precious metals) and clean tech like car catalysts and materials used to manufacture electric car batteries.
The company has been going through some growing pains and froze its dividends for 3 years, but today they announced a 20 percent dividend hike as things are looking up again.
You can read my Umicore article over here:
Overall, still a turbulent market but I’ve been happy with several recent dividend increases. Diageo recently raised its interim dividend by 5 percent and Novo Nordisk delivered another massive 28 percent dividend hike.
