Best Stocks With Dividend Growth | 32 Stocks Announced A Dividend Hike Last Week

Stocks with biggest dividend hikes from last week; originally published at Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Here is a current list of companies that have announced a dividend increase within the recent week. In total, 32 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 17 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 24.26 percent. Below the results are six high-yields and eighteen companies are currently recommended to buy.

My favorites are low leveraged stocks. I believe that those companies could give investors a solid chance of further dividend hikes. If not, they could boost growth without capital increases. I do not own any stocks from the screen. I'm annoyed not to buy some Disney shares. Last year, I bought stocks from its rivals Hasbro and Mattel because of the higher yield and lower P/E. They performed well but Disney beats this return despite the fact that the current dividend yield is still low and below the two percent mark.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:

    As many income investors know, dividend investing can result in the guarantee of income or, in certain cases where the investor has a dividend reinvestment account, more shares. I personally prefer the latter, but that's just me. In the case of the two stocks featured, the dividend increases shouldn't be the only factors taken into account before establishing a position.
