Stocks With Fastest Dividend Growth August 2011

I screened a table of companies with the fastest dividend growth compared to the previous dividend declaration. The dividend growth is often a good indicator for the financial health of a stock. Companies with a strong increase in dividends judge the future of their company rosy. They give money back to shareholders that they don’t need for their business.

Here are my 3 most promising stocks from the screening results:


1. Home Bancshares (NASDAQ:HOMB) is acting within the money center banks industry. The company has a market capitalization of USD 635.8 million, generates revenues in an amount of USD 167.7 million and a net income of USD 19.3 million. It follows P/E ratio is 33.3 and forward price to earnings ratio 11.6, Price/Sales 3.8 and Price/Book ratio 1.3. Dividend Yield: 1.4 percent. Years of Consecutive Dividend Increasing: 0 Years. 5-Year Dividend Growth: 0 percent. The company paid dividends since 2006. Dividend growth since previous dividend declaration: 48.1 percent.

2. Sturm, Ruger and Company (NYSE:RGR) is acting within the sporting goods industry. The company has a market capitalization of USD 557.9 million, generates revenues in an amount of USD 277.6 million and a net income of USD 30.5 million.
