Dividend Growth | The Best Stocks With Dividend Growth From Last Week


I love dividends and dividend growth stocks. That’s the main reason why I make a regular screen of the latest stocks with dividend growth on my blog “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. 

I believe that those companies could have a well running business and could have a better performance in the long-run. 

Below is a current list of companies that have announced a dividend increase within the recent week. In total, 5 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 2 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 17.0 percent.

Below the results is one high-yield stock from the closed-end debt industry. Three of the growth stocks have a current buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
