13 High-Beta Dividend Champions with Cheap Forward P/Es

The dividend champions list is a compressed compilation of stocks with the longest dividend growth history. Those stocks raised their cash dividend payments over a period of more than 25 years.

In my current article serial, I write about high beta stocks and the possibility to make more money in a bullish market with high beta stocks. High beta stocks are more closely correlated with the market and can result in a higher performance.

Today I would like to observe those Dividend Champions with a beta ratio above one as well as a forward P/E below 15. It’s very important to make sure that the companies are cheap because only with a high initial earnings yield you can increase the possibility of a good long-term total return. Thirteen stocks fulfilled the above mentioned criteria of which 10 are currently recommended to buy.
