12 Cheap Dividend Champions With Double-Digit Earnings Growth

Dividend Champions with strongest growth and cheap forward P/E ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Some of us like dividend growth and they want invest money into the best long-term growth picks. I also like to make money by holding a passive stake of a well-managed company and see how they create more and more values over the time.

A great source for high-quality stocks are Dividend Champions. Those are stocks with a dividend growth history of 25 or more consecutive years. 105 companies have created such a fantastic trust relationship to their shareholders.


Today I want to highlight the best growth picks with acceptable price ratios. Sure, cheap stocks with high growth don’t exist especially when you are looking for low risk stocks. Something must be wrong. But see this screening results as an informative tool with which you can adjust your own asset allocation and ask yourself if your current holdings with less growth and higher P/Es are worth to buy or hold.


Twelve Dividend Champions fulfilled my criteria of a low forward P/E (less than 15) at double-digit earnings per share forecast for the next five years. The best yielding pick is Walgreen, the leading drug store operator. Eleven of the results are currently recommended to buy. See the table linked and leave a comment below which of the results you would buy or sell.

    Like many of the screens, strategies, and portfolios I track and prefer, the High Yield Dividend Champion Portfolio uses a small number of historically relevant ideas to create a simple, yet powerful investment plan. A High Yield Dividend Champion Portfolio attempts to capture the best high yield, low payout stocks with a history of raising dividends. There are numerous ways to gauge the "best" high yield/low payout stocks. Your list has not many high yielding D-Champs.
