My 4 Favorite Dividend Growth Stocks from Abroad

Europe is still on fire. The economy is in a triple-dip recession and the European member states cut spending. The unemployment is high but every economic depression could be a solid basis for future engagements in the stock market. Today I scout for some dividend growth opportunities outside the U.S.

I screened my database of stocks with a consecutive dividend increase of at least five years by foreign stocks. Around 35 (approximately 8 percent) of them have headquarters abroad. Below is a small list of the 20 biggest results. Elevent of them are currently recommended to buy. Canada is the most represented country in the screen.
