4 Hot Dividend Growing Incurance Stocks You Must Know (ACE, AFL, TRV, UNH)

During the past week I've visited my girlfriend and came back home with some ideas about investing. 

Earlier this year, I've noticed that insurance stocks are great cash flow producer and some of them have a really low dividend payout ratio. They invest a huge amount of money to buy back own shares and they are really cheap valuated.

Warren Buffet likes insurer but he prefers today stocks from the cable business. I also see that those companies have a very attractive Price-to-Ebitda ratio.

However, I bought two German insurers last Friday. They yield over 3 percent and I like to increase my positions over the next time if they become cheaper.

The American stock market also has great insurer to look at. Aflac and Travelers are my two favorites followed by Chubb Corp. Those are also long-term dividend grower and part of David Fish's CCC List.

Below I've highlighted a few large cap insurer from the accident & health insurance industry as well as stocks from the property & casualty insurance industry. In addition, I've added large caps from the health care plans industry. From there came only one stock, the United Health Group.

All of the selected stocks have raised dividends by more than five consecutive years. Just dare a glace at my thoughts. I know that those stocks are not very popular but they are very attractive in terms of price for cash.

For sure, insurers need a high interest environment but what do you think about the future global interest rate? Will they fall or are we in a time of rising rates? Let us discuss your thoughts below in the comment box. I'm happy to see your opinion.
