New Dividend: 19 cents quarterly (per share)

Dividend Percent Increase: 11.76%

Current Yield: 1.71%

Fastener and maintenance product supplier Fastenal (FAST - Get Report) is another name that announced a dividend hike this week. On Wednesday, FAST reported that it would be increasing its quarterly shareholder payout by 11.76% to 19 cents per share. The move puts FAST's dividend yield at 1.71%.

While that doesn't exactly qualify Fastenal for "core income" status, it does point to the fact that this stock's share price has been trailing its fundamental performance in 2012. A bigger dividend means that shareholders get more their share of that financial performance.

Fastenal owns an attractive share of the maintenance product business through its network of more than 2,600 stores, a geographic footprint that most rivals can't touch. Even though the industry is quite fragmented, Fastenal's best-in-breed status should continue to grow its share -- especially now that FAST has started supplying the U.S. government.

As of the most recently reported quarter, Fastenal was one of Ruanne Cunniff's holdings.
