My 4 Favorites from the Highest Growing Dividend Stocks in February 2013

Dividend growth is wonderful. It helps you to grow your own wealth and build up a passive income without hard work.

Growth is a must have for every investor who wants to increase their net worth. You also need growth in order to boost your passive income for an earlier retirement, especially when you don't have a high-paid job or rich parents. This is how it works: If you purchase a stock today with 3 percent yield, growth can lift up your yield on cost to 30 percent in 20 years.

There are some pretty good stocks with very good growth rates which indicate strong business health. The average dividend growth of the 50 best stocks amounts to 72.68 percent.
