5 Dividend Champions With Higher Dividends In 3 Months

No one has a crystal-ball but when we look forward in the dividend growth space we have a great possibility to find stocks that may raise dividends in the near future in order to keep their status.

Today I like to introduce some Dividend Champions that need to hike dividends over the next three month. They did grow dividend over more than 25 years, why stopping now?

In total, 13 stocks must grow dividends of which two are High-Yields. For sure most of the 13 stocks have grown their dividends by a low rate of less than 10 percent annually. The fastest Champ was Archer-Daniels-Midland with a 5-Year dividend growth rate of 7.9 percent.

Small dividend hikes are not bad. Remember, the inflation is also low and a 3 percent dividend hike could hedge your investment.

The best performing stock from the list was the financial services company McGraw Hill. Since 2010, the company went up 150 percent while the worst performer, AT&T realized only a gain of around 18 percent.


These are my 5 favorites...
