13 High Beta Dividend Champions With Cheap Forward P/E’s

Dividend Champions with high beta ratios and low valuation originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com.

Thirteen stocks fulfilled the above mentioned criteria of which ten are currently recommended to buy.

Here are the highest yielding results:
