60 Stocks And 6 Funds Raised Dividend Payments Last Week

Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. Last week was an interesting one because some of the big players announced a dividend hike, in-line with the expectations of the market. They are still continuing long-term dividend grower. Below the results are IBM, PepsiCo, Costco, American Express or Royal Dutch. 

In total, 60 shares and six ETFs announced a hike, in average a 30.05 percent increase. Eleven of them pay a high yields; 37 have a current buy or better recommendation. 

The markets are at All-Time-Highs and nobody scares this. I hate it when stocks getting more expensive and yields go rapidly down because I must limit my stock purchases. In such an environment, a dividend growth investor can’t build values when a slow growing stock pays a 1.5 percent yield - a value similar to the bond market yields. Let’s hope that earnings and sales grow in the same amount.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
