Dividends4Life: My 6 Favorite Dividend Growth And Share Buyback Stocks Of The Week

Today I've compiled the latest dividend growth stocks and share buyback announcements. Twelve companies have released a share buyback program but only Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) was the company with significant influence. The military provider to the U.S. Government plans to buy additional $2 billion in own shares in the future. That's good news for shareholders and those will also receive more money by dividends. Lockheed also boosted its dividend payments by 12.78 percent. The new yield will hit the 3.3 percent level.

On the dividend growth side, only 14 companies or funds/trusts announced to pay higher dividends. The biggest company was Lockheed Martin followed by the electric utility stock OGE Energy (NYSE:OGE). My favorite Dividend Grower and Share Repurchaser of the recent week are... Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE:HT), Lockheed Martin, Washington Federal (NASDAQ:WAFD), OGE Energy, Atlantic Tele-Network (NASDAQ:ATNI) and Curtiss-Wright (NYSE:CW).
