16 Stocks Hiked Dividends In The Past Week

What a Week! Scotland vote no and belong further to the United Kingdom but more important to me were the dividend growth announcements of the week which I cover.

I love dividend growth stocks and made a significant amount of money with them as a long-term orientated investor. My strategy is somewhat between growth and value. I’m a fan of Warren Buffett but I have my own experience and strategy.

Within the past week, sixteen stocks hiked dividends. Big names like Microsoft and McDonalds are part of the list.

Below is a small overview of my favorites by biggest market capitalization. At the end of this article, you will also find a full list of all dividend grower and buyback announcements.

Dividend growth and share buybacks are two essential ways to give shareholders directly and indirect more money into their pocket.

It also show in most cases that the firm is doing well and like to share their success with the owner of the company.

Oracle was the biggest player with an additional buyback plan of USD 13 billion, that's 7.2 percent of its current market capitalization. But without Larry Ellison as CEO of the company, we should wait what happens with earnings over the next quarters.
