16 Really Cheap International Dividend Achievers

Bargains from the International Dividend Achievers Index originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". If you like to make money with dividend stocks or you are a dividend growth investor, you should have a quiet overview of the best dividend paying stocks from abroad.

Sure, I know that you can enumerate all Dividend Achievers from the United States. Those stocks have raised their dividends over a period of more than 10 consecutive years. But if you should do the same with European stocks, you would fail.

What is different compared to U.S. Dividend Achievers? The effort in dividend growth is lighter. Stocks need to increase dividends uninterrupted over 5 years or more. In additon, the stocks must be incorporated outside the U.S. but must be listed on a U.S. or U.K. Stock Exchange.

Why is dividend investing so important? I am a private trader and made most of my wealth through trading of high-quality dividend growth stocks. Over the recent 10 years, around 1/3 of my performance was made with dividend payments.

Today I try to find some really cheap stocks below the International Dividend Achievers Index. The forward P/E should be under 10. Only 16 of 51 stocks meet these criteria. Eleven of them are currently recommended to buy.


Here are the 3 best yielding International Dividend Achiever:

  2. Therefore glad I found your website searching for shoes.
    This is great information at any given time when the internet is full
    of falsehoods. Keep up the task in "Link to another good article from Allen Wright" and that i can
    come back often.
