The 4 Top Dividend Growth Stocks of 2014

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 01, 2015 | | 0 comments »

2014 isn't quite over just yet, but it's not too early to take a look at the dividend stocks that have distinguished themselves this year by providing big increases in their dividends compared to their levels toward the end of 2013. With that in mind, I looked for large-cap stocks yielding at least 2% to find out which ones had managed to see the most impressive rising dividends. The following four stocks stood out from the crowd, so let's take a look to see whether they remain compelling investments right now.

Fertilizer giant CF Industries Holdings (NYSE: CF) took a long time getting its dividend up to respectable levels, but in the past year it finally emerged onto the scene as a legitimate dividend stock. Oilfield services giant National Oilwell Varco (NYSE: NOV) boosted its dividend by more than 75% in June, following up on a 2013 increase that doubled its quarterly payout. Hotel operator Host Hotels & Resorts (NYSE: HST) had a tough task to achieve in recent years, with the financial crisis forcing it to make major dividend cuts. Refinery giant Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) has doubled its dividend over the past two years.
