20 Biggest Foreign Dividend Growth Stocks

Large capitalized dividend growth stocks from foreign countries originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Europe is still on fire. The economy is in a triple dip recession and the European member states cut spending. The unemployment is high but every economic depression could be a solid basis for future engagements in the stock market. Today I like to scout for some dividend growth opportunities outside the United States.

I screened my database of stocks with a consecutive dividend increase of at least five years by foreign stocks. Around 35 (approx. 8 percent) of them have headquarters abroad. Below is a small list of the 20 biggest results. 11 of them are currently recommended to buy. Canada is the most represented country in the screen.


Here are my favorite stocks:
