Shoppers aren't the only ones getting into the holiday spirit. These days, many companies are getting into the mood by dishing out higher dividend checks. The money is nice, but the sweeter point for investors is that these companies are confident enough in their future earnings power to give up a little more of their cash to investors.
Readers of the Fool's Income Investor newsletter service can certainly appreciate that kind of thinking. Let's take a closer look at four of the companies that inched their payouts higher this past week.
We can start with Disney
Another company spicing things up is McCormick
Then we have Teche Holding
