Dividend Stocks for the Week

Updated from 8:07 a.m. EDT, March 17

If a stock has raised its dividend regularly over many years, that means it's a good buy, right?

Not necessarily. According to RealMoney's Gary Dvorchak, long-term dividend performance is not what matters right now, " since those records were built mostly during good times." Rather, he likes the companies that are currently raising dividends, in the midst of a bad recession.

Every week, Stockpickr reviews the recent dividend declarations and compiles a portfolio of the top dividend-raisers for the previous week. This week's portfolio includes such stocks as Piedmont Natural Gas (PNY - Get Report), yielding 4.5%, and Franklin Resources (BEN - Get Report), yielding 1.8%.
