Home Depot HD5-Year Dividend Growth Rate: 12.6%
5-Year Expected EPS Growth Rate: 15.6%

Home Depot (HD) has taken full advantage of the recovering housing market to accelerate its growth on the top and bottom lines, particularly over the past three year housing recovery to accelerate its growth on both the top and bottom lines, particularly during the past three-year stretch.

The 2,200-store mega-retailer has kept up its momentum heading into fiscal 2014, generating record quarterly revenue for the second quarter of $22.5 billion compared to $20.6 billion last year, while net income rose just under 18% over the same comparable period.

HD rewarded shareholders with a sweet 34% dividend increase between 2012 and 2013, raising it to 39 cents per share quarterly. Meanwhile, analysts see double-digit growth in the next half-decade, which should power more hikes down the road.
