77! That’s the number of stocks and funds which raised dividends last week. It’s the highest amount this year and the highest for several months.

Dividend growth is often a good sign for a healthy business. Corporate leaders like to give money back that they don’t need for their business. They also expect a strong incoming cash flow.
