I love dividends and dividend growth stocks. That's the main reason why I make a regular screen of the latest stocks with dividend growth on my blog "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I believe that those companies could have a well running business and could have a better performance in the long-run. Below is a current list of companies that have announced a dividend increase within the recent week. In total, 56 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 37 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 129.26 percent.
22 of the dividend growth stocks/funds from last week are currently recommended to buy. Last Week's dividend hikes are also affected by the fiscal cliff. Companies try to hedge against automated tax increases on dividends and pay extraordinary dividends before 2013.
