12 Healthcare Dividend Stocks With Gaining Earnings Momentum

Healthcare Dividend Stocks With Accelerated Growth Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Growth stocks are wonderful especially if they are at the beginning of their growth path. Growth normally creates shareholder value and if the company doesn’t need much money to finance the growth, you can benefit already within the early stage.

I screened the healthcare sector by stocks with a recent earnings growth of more than ten percent (past five years).

Exactly twelve companies fulfilled these criteria. All of them are recommended to buy.
