These Top Dividend Growth Stocks Should Boost Dividends By 15% Next Year

If you want to know what professional investment analysts predict about the best dividend growth stocks, you need to read the latest study from Goldman Sachs. The investment bank created a dividend growth basket of 50 best stocks with potential.

Goldman's Dividend Growth basket consists of 50 stocks with a median expected 2016 dividend yield of 3%. Goldman expects these companies to raise their dividends by an average of 12% in 2016. In comparison, the median S&P 500 stock has an expected dividend yield of 2.2% and an expected median dividend growth of 7% next year.

The basket has a large-cap bias because larger firms are more likely to pay dividends. Investors should use this basket to identify stocks returning cash to shareholders through strong dividend growth and high dividend yields.

Attached are 9 stocks with potential to grow dividends in 2016 by more than 15%. Those stocks have better fundamentals than 40 others in the basket.
