13 Of The Cheapest Dividend Achievers You Need To Know

Dividend Achievers With Cheap Price Ratios Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Dividend Achievers are stocks that have raised their distributions to shareholders via dividends over a period of 10 consecutive years. 186 listed companies or 2.8 percent of the available stocks have such an impressive dividend growth history. But to own wonderful growth stocks with a high reliability of dividend payments does not guarantee a high final total return. You need to look at stocks with cheap price ratios.

In order to find the cheapest Dividend Achievers, I screened the investment category by companies with a P/S ratio of less than one, a P/B ratio lower than two and finally a current P/E ratio below 15. Thirteen companies remained of which six are recommended by investment firms.
