Last week was an additional week where 20 stocks announced to raise dividends. MFA Financial, is on the list with a 10 percent hike. Other big companies are Cisco, the company which handles traffic on the internet. Cisco raised its dividends by 21.4 percent and is definitely my top pick from the results. Five stocks are debt-free and additional five have a low debt ratio.
