These Dividend Contenders May Rise Dividends Within The Next 3 Months

Recently, I wrote about DividendChampions that may rise dividends within the next 3 months in order to keep their status as dividend grower alive.

It's fantstic to know what companies should hike it's dividends because the current yields are so low that each investor get tears in his eyes.

A potential dividend hike could lift the current dividend yield on a new level.


Today I like to introduce some Dividend Contenders with potential to hike dividends over the next quarter. As a result, I found 20 companies; nine of them yield over 3 percent.

Dividend Growth is a wonderful investing space on which I personally spend a lot of time. 

I love it to see dividends grow but it's only possible if a company grows and has low debt ratios.

These are my 6 highlights...
