Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". 13 stocks and 9 funds announced a dividend hike within the recent week. The number of dividend growers remains weak.

The biggest names on the list are United Health and Lowe's as well as FedEx. In addition, five companies cut dividends and one announced a special initial dividend.

I know it's hard to manage dividend growth especially when the company is acting within a very cyclic industry. But dividend growth is an expression to shareholders about the company's success and the willingness to share profits with the ownership of the company.

10 of the 13 stocks are currently recommended to buy.
