My Favorites From Last Week's Best Stocks With Dividend Growth

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 those 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, nine stocks and funds raised dividends of which five have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 14.22 percent.

Below the best dividend hike stocks/funds are two with a high yield. Seven of the results are currently recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
