The Best Stocks With Dividend Growth From Last Week

I love dividends and dividend growth stocks. That’s the main reason why I make a regular screen of the latest stocks with dividend growth on my blog long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I believe that these companies could 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, 10 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 7 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 234.71 percent.

Only one of the dividend growth stocks/funds from last week is currently recommended to buy, with seven yielding over three percent. The results are dominated by closed-end-funds.
