20 Dividend Challengers with Fastest Growing Dividends

Recently I screened Dividend Champs with the fastest rate of dividend growth. McDonald’s was my best-yielding pick. I noticed that the top 20 stocks had a 10-year dividend growth performance of remarkable 10 to 30 percent yearly but for most of them, the performance slowed within the recent years.

It’s not possible for any company to raise dividends at a very high rate over a longer period. It’s also not possible to raise dividend payments with a gaining momentum. Every company that does this must reduce its growth speed over time.

Today, I introduce some of the fastest growing dividend payers that have raised their distributions at least for five consecutive years but less than 10 years. Here, the best results have grown their dividend payments over the recent five years with a rate of 90 to 30 percent. That’s definitely a higher growth figure but as I said, every growth rate will come down.

Below the top results of my screen are 11 stocks with a buy or better rating. Three of them are high-yields.

Here are my favorite stocks:
