These 20 Stocks Have Raised Dividends Last Week
Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Within the past week, 20 companies announced a dividend hike. I've the feeling that the number of hikes go down for a few weeks. I remember times when 70 stocks a week hiked its dividends. But I think it's only a span and the number will rise in the future.
The most promising hike was in my view made by Raytheon. The military supplier for the government suffers under the fear of budget cuts. The current hike is a clear statement to investors that they have strong fundamentals and could hike dividends despite potential sales and earnings declines.
Another stock with a wonderful growth announcement was Air Products and Chemicals. The major diversified chemical company will raise dividend payments to shareholders by 10.9 percent. A reader of my blog asks me recently for my view about the stock. He thought that ADP has a great market position in the H and Helium market and could start to boom if prices go up.
