50 Shares With Fastest Dividend Growth In July 2013

Stocks with highest dividend growth researched by Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Dividends are back: The numbers of shares with a solid dividend grow accelerated within the recent weeks to old levels and a few big names are below the fastest growing dividend stocks from the past month. Names like McKesson, Wendy’s or Hershey. You might have noticed the dividend growth if you read some of the latest articles on my blog.

Today would like to give you an update of the 50 fastest dividend growers from the recent month. Below the results are again some pretty good stocks with very good growth rates. The average dividend growth of the 50 best stocks amounts to 45.11 percent. Four of the 50 dividend growers have a double-digit dividend yield and ten a high-yield over 5 percent. Around half of the results still have a buy or better rating.

Here are my favorite stocks with fastest dividend growth:
