16 Stocks And 3 Funds Hiked Dividends Last Week

Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. The dividend growth slows over the recent weeks. At the peak, nearly 70 stocks announced a dividend hike per week. Last week we had 19 companies and funds combined.

My favorite player is Qualcomm who hiked its dividend by 40 percent. Another well known company is the fast food chain Burger King. BKW raised dividends by 20 percent. All in all, the results are very mixed.

In total, 16 stocks and 3 funds increased its dividend payments over the recent week. Five of them are High-Yields and nine have a current buy or better recommendation. The average dividend growth amounts to 39.23 percent.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
