13 of the Cheapest Dividend Achievers

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.
