17 Of The Safest Dividend Champions With Acceptable P/E Ratios

Cheap And Safe Dividend Champions Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Dividend Champions are stocks with consecutive dividend hikes of more than 25 years. At the moment are 103 companies available which have fulfilled these dividend growth criteria. At times of ongoing crises (debt burdens in industrialized economies), we should consider stocks with reliable dividends and stable business models at reasonable prices. Let’s make a screen.

In order to get attractive valuated stocks, the P/E ratio should below twenty. Exactly seventeen Dividend Champions fulfilled these criteria of which nine have a dividend yield of more than three percent and eight are currently recommended to buy.
