3 Top-Yielding Dividend Aristocrats with Low Forward P/Es

Dividend growth is one of the core items of my blog. I always screen the market by stocks with a very long dividend payment history and try to discover some opportunities for you.

What we’ve seen over the recent months is that the market gets more and more expensive due the low interest environment. It’s really hard to find low valuated stocks with a high quality and proven business model.

Today I would highlight some of the cheapest Dividend Aristocrats on the market. Those stocks have a forward P/E of less than 15.

Only 16 companies form the index have such a low valuation and one of them has a yield over 5 percent. Ten are currently recommended to buy.

Here are the top yielding stocks:
