Dividend Champions with highest growth at low pricing figures originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Many people want to make money by stock trading but most of them fail. I often tell you that you can only make money if you buy stocks at fair prices with attractive financial ratios. To buy stocks at normal prices gives you the possibility to find more investment opportunities at lower risk.
I don't want the cheapest stocks with the highest yields because there is something wrong with the business model and the market knows it. I prefer stocks with a P/E ratio in the range of 10 to 20 with positive or even high growth rates for the mid-term. Not enough, the business environment should be low volatile and slow changing.
Today I like to focus on the best class of dividend growth stocks, the Dividend Champions league. Those stocks have raised dividends over a period of more than 25 consecutive years. Exactly 105 companies fulfilled these criteria. Below is a nice list of 20 Dividend Champs at low P/E levels (under 15) with the highest earnings per share growth for the next five years.
Cheap or not is often a question of growth. Only two companies have a yield over 3 percent and thirteen are currently recommended to buy now.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
