26 Stocks Raised Dividends Over The Past Week

Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. Dividend growth matters and has significant influence to your asset strategy. A higher dividend in the future also lifts your passive income from stock investing. It’s a good method to boost your total return.

Out there are many studies, telling you that nearly half of the average return on the stock market is responsible to dividend payments. That’s a huge number in my view but what if we are trying to find the best dividend stocks, stocks that are better than the average? I think about companies that pay in ten years more dividends to you than you have ever paid for the whole investment.

I strongly believe that this strategy will deliver good returns. The only problem is to discover these growth stocks that are willing to give you huge amounts of money back.

However, one way to get some ideas of the greatest dividend growth stocks is to look at the current lists of dividend growers. On my blog I publish on a regular basis these lists.

Last week, 26 companies announced a higher dividend. I’ve published all stocks with dividend growth from the recent week in the attached dividend list for you. In average, stocks from the list of the latest dividend growth stocks have increased their dividend payments by 25.49 percent.

Five of the results have a high yield of more than five percent. Analysts and brokerage firms recommend 16 of the latest dividend growth stocks.

Here some of the biggest dividend growth stocks:
