SAN FRANCISCO ( TheStreet) -- Everyone, it seems, likes dividends. Jim Cramer says they're a " secret weapon" in saving for retirement. David Peltier, portfolio manager of the Dividend Stock Advisor, says investors should " focus on companies that are raising their dividends."

Stockpickr likes dividends, too, with hundreds of portfolios dedicated to dividend-paying stocks (to find them, just enter "dividend" in the search box). For example, there's the High Beta Dividends portfolio, the Large-Cap Gold Stocks with Dividends portfolio and the Microcaps with Dividends portfolio. (To create your own portfolio, just sign up at Stockpickr.) As Peltier advises, investors should be on the lookout for companies that increase their dividends. With that in mind, Stockpickr has reviewed the recent dividend declarations and compiled a portfolio of dividend-increasers for the week.
