12 Dividend Contenders Below Book Value

October 09, 2012 | About:
Cheap Dividend Contenders in Terms of Reproduction Value Researched by “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.” Dividend Contenders are stocks with a history of rising dividends of more than 10 years in a row but less than 25. Exactly 178 companies fulfilled these growth criteria but many are highly priced.

In order to find some opportunities, I screened all Dividend Contenders with a very low price to book ratio. Especially in times of heavy crises, the reproduction value or the market value of properties, machines and equipments is an award lowmark for investors. If the price of the whole company falls below the value of the equity, you should get real bargains from the value site. Twelve Dividend Contenders have a current P/B ratio of less than one. Two of them are high-yields and eight are recommended to buy.
