The Best Stocks With Dividend Growth From Last Week

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, 22 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 15 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 110.63 percent.

Twelve of the dividend growth stocks/funds from last week are currently recommended to buy; fifteen yielding over three percent.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
