17 Cheap Income Growth Stocks From The High-Yield Dividend Achievers Index

Dividend income growth stocks with high yields and low price-to-earnings ratios originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. High yielding stocks in a low interest environment are the only solution to hedge your assets against inflation.

But high yielding stocks are rare when the Fed keeps its leading interest rates close to zero percent and pull the market loan rates via bond purchases to the ground. But the inflation risk is still aware and you will get poorer over the time.

I stopped quit purchasing stocks for my own accounts at the beginning of the year, and it was the wrong decision because equities are now significantly more expensive. I don’t believe that they are still cheap, more likely fair valuated or slightly overpriced.

It’s very hard to discover good stocks with solid dividend growth and high yields. I talk about yields over 3 percent and not the big risk including stocks with yields far above 5 percent.

Today I would like to screen the High-Dividend Achievers Index by stocks with inflation adequate yields and low price-to-earnings ratios. I prefer a ratio of the forward P/E below 15. Only 17 of 50 index members fulfilled these criteria. You can find a detailed list of these stocks attached.

Two High-Yields are part of the results and five received a current buy or better rating. Banks and utilities are the dominating industries on the list.

Here are the top stocks with the highest expected earnings growth:
