Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com“. Last week, additional 41 stocks and funds announced to raise dividends. The average dividend growth amounts to 34.59 percent. On the list are some big Players from the financial sector like JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup or W.R. Berkley. Also the Tech giant Hewlett-Packard raised its dividend by 10 percent despite the operational problems. Twelve companies announced to pay a first dividend ever and ten stocks reduced its payments last week.

The good thing is that dividend growth is definitely stronger established than dividend cuts.
