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, 72 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 28 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 48.60 percent.

25 of the dividend growth stocks/funds from last week are currently recommended to buy.
