When Coca-Cola's board of directors meets next month, it's likely to boost the company's regular quarterly dividend for the 44th year in a row.

If so, Coke will join a burgeoning number of companies that are expected to boost their shareholder payouts this year.



"If the economy and corporate profits continue to show strength which we think they will it is likely that we will see more than 2,000 dividend increases in 2006," says Joseph Lisanti, editor of Standard & Poor's newsletter, The Outlook.
