My 4 Favorite Stocks with Dividend Growth from Last Week

Last week was a great week with some attractive dividend hikes. In total, 63 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 41 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 32.31 percent. Below is a current list of all companies and funds with a dividend increase within the recent week.

On the list are some favorites of ine. MMM is one of the companies. I owned some shares of the company a few years before but I sold the stake in expectation of a recession. MMM has some cyclic products and is a supplier for the industrial sector.

What I have learned from this asset sale was that it wasn’t necessary. I didn’t need the money and my view about the future perspectives was false. If you are a long-term investor, you shouldn’t be so anxious like I was. If the recession comes, you only need money to increase your stakes. Cash is king in the investment scene.
