The Cheapest Dividend Contenders With Lowest PEG-Ratio

Dividend Contender With Cheap Price-Earnings To Growth Ratio Researched by Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Dividend Contenders are stocks that have raised their distributions for at least 10 years but not more than 24 years. They have a long history of dividend payments and created a lot of trust to shareholders. Out there are 146 stocks with such an impressive development but not all of them are still growing and expensive in terms of growth. I screened all Dividend Contenders by stocks with a low price-earnings to growth ratio (PEG), stocks that have a ratio of less than one. Twelve stocks fulfilled my criteria of which one have a yield above five percent. Ten have a buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite stocks:
