38 Stocks And ETFs Let Their Dividends Jump Last Week

Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. Last week, 36 stocks and two ETFs announced to raise dividends. It’s great to see how the American dividend stock machine works. Compared to the number of stocks from the recent weeks, the current results are still thin but solid. The list of the weekly dividend grower is very volatile and the number of constituents is between 10 and 100. This week, the average growth rates amounts to 33.8, a value twice as much as the results from last week.

I love it to see how companies increase their dividend payments despite the fact that I would buy only a few of them. The biggest names on the list are Clorox, Coach, Marriott, Macy’s and Potash. Three of the results are High-Yields and 20 have a current buy or better rating.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
