Not every company is slashing its dividend these days. Some of the market's better performers are easing up on their purse strings and sending more money out to their shareholders.
Readers of the Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter can appreciate that kind of thinking. Let's take a closer look at four of the companies that inched their payouts higher this past week.

Subscribers to Income Investor can appreciate the companies that send more and more money to their investors. The newsletter service singles out companies that are committed to growing their distributions with market-thumping results.
