52 Stocks Raised Dividends Last Week and Which to Buy | A Full Compilation

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, 52 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 22 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 22.59 percent.

Below the dividend growth stocks/funds are 12 with a high yield. Thirty-seven of the results are currently recommended to buy or even have a strong buy rating.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
