16 Stocks And 3 Funds Hiked Dividends Last Week

Dividend growth slowed within the recent weeks. At the peak, nearly 70 stocks announced a dividend hike per week. Last week we had 19 companies and funds combined.

My favorite player is Qualcomm who hiked its dividend by 40%. Another well-known company is the fast food chain Burger King. BKW raised dividends by 20%. All in all, the results are very mixed.

In total, 16 stocks and 3 funds increased their dividend payments over the recent week. Five of them are High-Yields and nine have a current buy or better recommendation. The average dividend growth amounts to 39.23%.
