32 Stocks Raised Dividends Last Week | Oil & Gas Companies Are Big Players

I love dividends and dividend growth stocks because they are one of my major wealth driver. 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 companies with rising dividends should 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 hike within the recent week. In total, 32 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 18 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 25.33 percent.

Below the top dividend growth stocks are eight with a high yield. 16 companies are currently recommended to buy or even have a strong buy rating. 

If I scroll through the list, I find many oil and gas companies as well as financial stocks. Banks pay more dividends in order to establish pre-financial crises level. Well, that’s still far away. 

Oil & Gas pipeline operators raised dividends very continuously in the past. They benefit from the fact that America experiences a new oil rush with shale gas and shale oil. The new energy sources must be transported with an infrastructure that does not exist for the time being. 

It could be more interesting to look at railroad stocks. I try to make a screen in the near future. What are your thoughts about the lastest dividend growth stocks? Do you own some of them? Would you buy one of them? Please let me know and leave a comment in the box below!

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:

    My primary objective for investing is to seek income replacement. I want to earn more income from my investments than the income I earned during my working years.

    I believe the best way to achieve that is through Dividend Growth Investing.

    Dividend growth is the critical piece in the puzzle for creating a portfolio that will serve you over the years. Stay on growth.

  2. This is a simple idea, but it is also the simple most important idea for long term investors. The reason it is so important is that "dividend growth drives the compounding principle" for individual stocks in a way that is certain and inevitable. It is an authoritative force that compels higher returns regardless of the other factors affecting the stock market.
