My 4 Favorite Global Dividend Achievers with Over 10% Annual Net Earnings Growth Predictions

Dividend growth investors like you or me should also have a focus on stocks from abroad. It diversifies your portfolio and gives you more opportunities from different countries.

But you always have a currency risk if your stock is traded in a foreign currency. But you also own these risks with U.S. stocks that have a huge share of foreign sales. The corporation manages these risks for you.

Today I would like to filter my International Dividend Achievers list by stocks with the highest earnings per share growth forecast for the mid-term (five years). You can find a list attached about those stocks with double-digit earnings predictions by brokerage firms.

Only 19 of 55 dividend growth stocks from abroad with a dividend growth history of more than five consecutive years fulfilled my restrictions. Six of them still have a low forward P/E of less than 15 and eleven got a current buy or better rating. The yields are low in this environment thanks to Ben Bernanke who said that the tapering must wait until the economy improves stronger. The highest yielding stock from the list has a 3.45 percent yield.
