My 5 Favorite Stocks With Dividend Growth Of The Week

During the past Week, 64 companies increased their dividend payments. The biggest stocks are AbbVie, Visa, Halliburton, Energy Transfer Equity and the apparel company V.F. Corporation.

Four stocks from the dividend growers list have a forward P/E of less than 10 and eleven have a dividend yield over 5 percent. Below are my five favorites. You might agree or not.

Most of them are different and they don’t look like real Dividend Aristocrats or Dividend Champions as in the past articles.

My focus for this selection was mainly on Large Cap. I personally have no shares of them and don’t like to buy some in the near future but it’s always good to know what companies have hiked dividends because in five years or so, they could become to a new Dividend Challenger.

Big names on the Buyback side were Pfizer, AbbVie, Canadian National Railway, Parker-Hannfin, Nielsen and CarMax.

In total, 27 stocks announced a new, additional or increased share buyback program. The total buyback volume for the future is over USD 25 billion.
