Editor's note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the dividend yield of ONEOK Partners. We regret the error.
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.
Let's take a closer look at some of the companies that inched their payouts higher this past week.
First up is ConocoPhillips
Finally we have ONEOK Partners
Some of these moves may not seem like much, but consider the less savory moves that took place in recent days. FNB United, for example, completely eliminated its quarterly disbursements.
