Great Dividend Paying Stocks With Double-Digit Short-Term Dividend Growth

As dividend investor, I always look for great investment opportunites that pays-off within a decade or so. Only a quick return can ensure a good total performance.


The biggest problem with my desk research is that I ever find tons of stock ideas that have performed very well in the past and have hiked dividends with high rates over decades but over the time, they have weaken and show a slowing dividend growth rate. That's not what I like to see.

Today I would highlight five of the top dividend growth stocks that have kept a strong dividend increasing rate over the short-term. Those stocks have raised their dividend distributions over the past year by more than 10 percent.
