Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I like it to see dividends grow. It's a very good sign from the company to give money back to stockholders and share corporate profits.
For the time being, we are in a bullish market and the Federal Reserve is flooding the market with cheap money. These are the main forces for the strong stock market. But a growing dividend is not only a sign of a technical reaction, it's much more. A dividend growth shows normally that the operating business runs well. Last week, 54 stocks and 4 additional funds announced a higher dividend payment. I published all stocks with dividend growth from the recent week in the attached dividend list. In average, stocks from the list of the latest dividend growth stocks have increased their dividend payments by 17.11 percent.
