Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com“. Stocks with dividend growth often indicate that they have too much cash and a well-running business which produces more and more cash. They like to share their success with shareholders.

I believe that those companies have a well running business and could have a better performance in the long-run. Below is a current list of companies that have announced a dividend increase within the recent week. In total, 62 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 32 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 25.73 percent.

Below the best dividend hike stocks/funds are 20 companies with a high yield. 40 of the results are currently recommended to buy or even have a strong buy rating. Basic material and financial stocks are still the dominant sectors.
