3 Cheapest International Dividend Achievers

The search for high quality dividend stocks is the basis of my research. I always look for stocks with a good dividend history and potential to hike future dividends.

My results often come from the American stocks, but overseas you can also find some good dividend growth players with potential to grow further. For sure the rest of the world doesn’t have so many stocks with a long history of rising dividends, but there are a few attractive candidates.

Today I would like to look at some International Dividend Achievers. Those stocks have raised dividends for at least five consecutive years. In this article, I will present you the 15 cheapest stocks with positive five-year earnings per share growth expectations. Two high-yields are part of the results and seven of the cheapest foreign dividend stocks have a current buy or better rating.
