We present stellar parameters and metallicities for 29 planet-host stars, as well as for a large volume-limited sample of 53 stars not known to be orbited by any planetary-mass companion. These stars add to the results presented in our previous series of papers, providing two large and uniform samples of 119 planet-hosts and 94 "single" stars with accurate stellar parameters and [Fe/H] estimates. The analysis of the results further confirms that stars with planets are metal-rich when compared with average field dwarfs. Important biases that may compromise future studies are also discussed. Finally, we compare the metallicity distributions for single planet-hosts and planet-hosts in multiple stellar systems. The results show that a small difference cannot be excluded, in the sense that the latter sample is slighly overmetallic. However, more data are needed to confirm this correlation.
