    Weak pound lifts profit hopes at equipment hire firm Ashtead

    The company, which makes 84 percent of its revenue from U.S. business Sunbelt, said first-quarter underlying profit jumped 20 percent, helped by better margins, lower capital spending on replacing equipment and a lower pound. "With the benefit of weaker sterling, we expect full year results to be ahead of our expectations and the board continues to look to the medium term with confidence," Ashtead said in a statement, without giving details of its expectations. Nicholas Hyett, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said Ashtead also appeared to be benefitting from U.S. President Donald Trump's policies aimed at boosting economic growth.

    39 European Dividend Aristocrats for International Income Growth

    Most income investors are already familiar with the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats, a group of 53 American companies that have increased dividends at least 25 years in a row. As a group, these have been solid holdings for long-term investors, outperforming both the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the past decade. But they're not the only dividend royalty on the planet. Far from it. There's also a collection of 39 stocks across the pond that have earned the title of European Dividend Aristocrats. These don't have quite the same dividend longevity of their American counterparts, with the index requiring a minimum of just 10 consecutive increases to their annual payouts. But they do have a leg up on the U.S. Aristocrats - they tend to yield more, offering 3% as a group versus just 2.5% for the American Aristocrats. Here's a look at each of these lesser-known (but still very dependable) European Dividend Aristocrats: SEE ALSO: 53 Best Dividend Stocks for 2018 and Beyond
