Last week, 25 companies announced to raise their dividend distributions to shareholders. Many REITs and closed-end funds are on the list of the growth stocks.

My favorite is General Mills. GIS increased its dividends by 15.2 percent. That’s a pretty good value in my view especially when you consider that General Mills is not a fast growing stock. I also put shares of GIS into my Dividend Yield Passive Income Portfolio. With the latest hike, the current yield is back above the 3 percent mark.

Another stock with monthly paying dividends is Realty Income. It seems ambitious how fast they grow dividends. The latest hike was 0.2 percent on a monthly basis. The dividend payments of Realty Income are still higher than the earnings per share income – How long could this go on?

From 25 stocks with dividend growth from last week are 15 with a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 34.58 percent. Linked is a full free list of all companies and funds with some price ratios to compare.

Below the results are 4 High-Yields; 13 companies have a current buy or better rating.
