In economic difficult times, it makes sense to scout for investment opportunities with robust business models and sustainable dividends. Despite the uncertainty, many companies have a good ongoing business operation and they are still confident about the economic future. That’s the reason why they have raised dividends. Last week, 64 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 36 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 23.02 percent. However, I screened the recent dividend growth stocks by real bargains, measured by a P/E ratio of less than 15.
