dividend growth stocks investor is to build a steadily increasing income and not necessarily to outperform the market via capital gains. But given the choice, I certainty don't mind having both.
Below are several dividend stocks building shareholder returns with higher cash dividends:
Sovran Self Storage, Inc. (SSS) operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) engaged in the acquisition, ownership, and management of self-storage properties in the United States. July 2nd the company increased its quarterly dividend 10.4% to $0.53 per share. The dividend is payable July 26, 2013 to Shareholders of record on July 12, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.2%.
Molex Incorporated (MOLX) engages in the design, manufacture, and sale of electronic components worldwide. July 1st the company increased its quarterly dividend 9% to $0.24 per share. The dividend is payable July 25, 2013 to stockholders of record on June 28, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 3.2%.
Matson, Inc. (MATX) operates as an ocean freight carrier in the Pacific. June 27th the company increased its quarterly dividend 6.7$ to $0.16 per share.

Selecting stocks with increasing dividends is critical for an income growth strategy. The above list contains stocks that recently raised their dividends; it is not a list of recommend buys. As always, due diligence should be performed before buying or selling any stock. For a list of stocks with a long string of consecutive cash dividend increases, see this list.
Full Disclosure: No position in the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my dividend growth holdings here.
