7 Good Stocks With Return Promise

Buying big companies with strong cash flows and competitive advantages is one of my key philosophies when I think about investments. 

I also like such companies that grow and give more and more money back to shareholders.

I believe that each company should work for its owners and give them a good and solid return. 

That's one of the reasons why I'm scouting each week for the latest stocks with dividend growth and share buyback announcements.

Below are seven large caps with shareholder-friendly activities. I've tried to select a good mix from several sectors and industries but you can also find more by looking at the full list of dividend growers at the end of this article. I hope you get some inspirations.
