High Dividend Growth Stocks

The definition of “dividend growth” is “the percentage change in dividends paid per share compared to one year ago.”


The formula to calculate the dividend yield is as follows:
Dividend Growth = ((Current Dividend / Previous Dividend)-1)*100%


Dividend growth rate is another way to assess a stock’s dividend performance. Generally speaking, consistent dividend growth means a company makes more profit each year, and as a result, shareholders get more dividend payments. However, the growth is a result of the dividend payout ratio increasing.


In terms of what is considered high dividend growth, it is quite subjective. Here is a list of stocks with a dividend growth rate of at least 3%. You can filter them based on your own definition of high dividend growth.
