My 3 Cheap Dividend Champions with Double-Digit Earnings Growth
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Some of us like dividend growth and want to 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 it creates more and more value over time.

A great source for high-quality stocks is Dividend Champions. These are stocks with a dividend growth history of 25 or more consecutive years. Companies numbering 105 have created such a fantastic trust relationship with 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 result 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 worthy 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 Walgreens, 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.

Here are my favorite stocks:
