19 Dividend Contenders With The Highest Potential To Double Dividends

Dividend stocks can be the foundation of a great retirement portfolio. Not only do the payments put money in your pocket, which can help hedge against any dips in the stock market, but they're usually a sign of a financially sound company.

Dividends also give investors a painless opportunity to reinvest in a stock, thus compounding gains over time. However, not all income stocks live up to their full potential. 

Using the payout ratio -- i.e., the percentage of profits a company returns to its shareholders as dividends -- we can get a good bead on whether a company has room to increase its dividend. Ideally, we like to see healthy payout ratios less than 30%.

Attached you will find those Dividend Contenders with the highest possibility to raise dividends by more than 100% for the years to come.

Each of the stocks fulfilled the following criteria:

- Dividend Growth over 10 consecutive years and less than 25 years
- Payout Ratio under 30%
- Debt to Equity under 0.5
- EPS Growth for the next five years expected at 5% yearly.

19 stocks fulfilled the above mentioned criteria of which 12 got a buy or better rating by analysts.

10 Good Dividend Stocks To Be Oversold And Ready For A Rebound

Today I've focussed my research on oversold dividend stocks.  I've also implemented a few restrictions: My yield effort was at least 3 percent and the debt-to-equity should be normal, not overleveraged.

Stocks become oversold for many reasons, but the basic reason that I care about as a trend follower is that there were more sellers than buyers. Sure, this is simplistic, but why make trading any more difficult than it has to be?

Once a stock becomes oversold, I try to identify when buyers are moving back into the stock for a possible oversold bounce. 

One way to identify an oversold stock is to follow the relative strength index once it gets near or below 30. Another way is to look for a stock that's had an extended downtrend. 

Traders have to remember that oversold can always become more oversold.

That's why it's important to follow the price action and look for oversold stocks that have a probability--not a guarantee--of changing their trend and potentially spiking higher off depressed levels. 

These types of trades can yield big gains quickly, but remember that the price action is more important than the simple fact the stock is extremely oversold.

9 Dirty Cheap Dividend Aristocrats

Good initial yields are very important for income investors. Mostly, a high yield comes with a low valuation. But sometimes, you can catch stocks with a low valuation while the yields are low.

That's not a real problem because when the company put more money into buybacks or tries to speed up growth in the future.

Today I've created a list of Dividend Aristocrats with a low valuation, measured by a forward P/E under 15.

These are the cheapest Dividend Aristocrats on the market...

15 Fairly Priced Growth Orientated Dividend Achievers

Investing in dividend stocks isn't the only way to make money in the stock market, but it's a pretty effective one.

Buying dividend stocks and holding them for long periods of time can be a great way to generate income from your portfolio or help build a position over years through dividend reinvestment.

For this to be effective, though, investors need to find stocks of quality companies that are going to crank out dividends at a decent rate quarter after quarter.

A solid ground to start your research is the dividend Achievers list. Those stocks managed to raise dividends each year for more than 10 years in a row.

In total, there are 333 stocks with such an impressive dividend growth history.

Today I want to select only those that might look really interesting in terms of price to growth. 

I selected those stocks with double-digit expected earnings per share growth while the forward P/E is still less than 15 and an acceptable debt burden weights on the balance sheet.

Only 15 stocks fulfilled these criteria. You find the full list at the end of this article.
