17 Cheap Dividend Contenders with Buy Ratings and Double-Digit Growth

Dividend growth and passive income strategies for normal investors is the core content of this blog. I personally create these articles to share my thoughts about good dividend-paying stocks.

The underlying aim is to build a portfolio with high-quality dividend stocks that hike dividends in the future and boost your passive income. If they pay a good dividend and they grow, the share price must follow one day and reflect the corporate success.

Today I would like to present some dividend growth stocks with 10 to 25 years of growing dividends and buy or better ratings. These are my criteria in detail:

- 10 to 25 years of consecutive dividend growth
- Cheap forward P/E of less than 15
- EPS growth for the next five years over 10 percent yearly
- Buy or better rating by brokerage firms

Seventeen stocks fulfilled the above mentioned criteria of which one pays a high yield over five percent. Two companies have a strong buy rating.

Here are the cheapest growth stocks:
