Dividend Growth: 69 Stocks And Funds Increased Dividends Last Week

Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. 

Last week was an additional strong week with 69 dividend hike announcements. The most popular hike was released by Wal-Mart who increased dividend payments by 18.2 percent. I own shares of WMT and was impressed. When I bought the stock, I knew that there is potential to double dividends at flat earnings because of the low payout figures.

Additional highlights from last week’s best dividend growth stocks are Texas Instruments (Dividends are up by 1/3), Kimberly Clark (+9.5 percent dividend increase) and Coca Cola (+9.8 percent).

Summarized: 69 stocks and funds raised dividends of which 48 have a dividend growth of more than 10 percent. The average dividend growth amounts to 34.90 percent. Linked is a small list of all companies and funds with some price ratios to compare.

Below the results are six High-Yields. 33 companies have a current buy or better rating.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
