Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. 

Last week was an additional week where 20 stocks announced to raise dividends. MFA Financial, is on the list with a 10 percent hike. Other big companies are Cisco, the company which handles traffic on the internet. Cisco raised its dividends by 21.4 percent and is definitely my top pick from the results. Five stocks are debt-free and additional five have a low debt ratio.

In total, 20 funds and stocks increased its dividend payments last week of which five are high-yields and 10 are recommended to buy. The average dividend growth amounts to 71.91 percent.
