5 Best Dividend Growth And Buyback Stocks Of The Week

One of my main thought related to investments is "how fast can the company pay my money back".

It's one of the basic principals in investing. Put your money into stocks that drive you cash back in a very short period of time. The smaller the pace, the bigger your return will be.

Warren Buffett bought BNSF Railway in November 3, 2009 for around USD 44 billion. It sounds like a huge amount of money but the railroad company who travelled 169 million miles in 2010 paid warren since his acquisition around $15 billion in dividends. Not bad for an old-school business.

Below I've compiled like each week stocks that have raised dividends during the past week. In addition, you can also find a list of those stocks which have released a share buyback program.

Receiving money, direct or indirect should help passive investors like me to hedge a minimum amount of return.
