These 29 Stocks Hiked Their Dividend Payments Last Week

Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I strongly believe that dividend growth investing will deliver good returns. As of now, I quadrupled my net worth by trading dividend growth stocks and boosted my passive income to a five-figure annual salary.

It’s great to see how everybody can build a portfolio of stocks that is growing and becomes better over the time. It feels like you are a real investor. Not playing with money or spending it. You invest it. You watch your assets and observe how your portfolio companies develop over the time. Some stocks will disappoint you and fail for sure. But if you have a good diversification of at least 50 shares or more, your average return will be great.

However, back to the current dividend growth stocks from last week. On my blog long-term-investments.blogspot.com, I publish on a regular basis lists of the latest dividend growers.

Last week, 29 companies announced a higher dividend. I’ve published all stocks with dividend growth from the recent week in the attached dividend list for you. You can also find a compilation of price and yield ratios there. In average, stocks from the list of the latest dividend growth stocks have increased their dividend payments by 17.03 percent.

Four of the results have a high yield of more than five percent and three yielding over 10%. Analysts and brokerage firms recommend 14 of the latest dividend growth stocks.

Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks:
