Stocks with biggest dividend hikes from last week; originally published at Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Here is a current sheet of companies that have announced a dividend increase within the recent week. In total, 32 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 17 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 24.26 percent. Below the results are six high-yields and eighteen companies are currently recommended to buy.
My favorites are low leveraged stocks. I believe that those companies could give investors a solid chance of further dividend hikes. If not, they could boost growth without capital increases. I do not own any stocks from the screen. I'm annoyed not to buy some Disney shares. Last year, I bought stocks from its rivals Hasbro and Mattel because of the higher yield and lower P/E. They performed well but Disney beats this return despite the fact that the current dividend yield is still low and below the two percent mark.
