18 Cool Dividend Growth Large Caps For A Hot Market

What stocks can we buy when the market hits new highs on a regular basis?

I'm really scared about the ease to trade stocks at such high levels. Markets are valuated far above 20 P/E multiples and the Dollar becomes more and more attractive for foreign investors.

When I look into my dividend stock database, I also see skyrocket price ratios. For sure there are some pretty good stocks in my sheets with deep values but normal investors don't should expect such a big growth for the near future that can justify this valuation.

Today I like to give you some ideas about good growing stocks with a solid dividend growth history and a low debt figure as well.

These are my criteria:

- Large Capitalization (+ 10 Billion USD)
- Expected EPS Growth over 10%
- P/E below 20
- Debt-To-Equity under 0.5
- Consecutive Dividend Payments over 10 years

18 stocks fulfilled my criteria. Not much but some ideas. Would I buy them? I'm not sure. I think that more and more volatility is coming into the market and this could also mean that it is possible to buy them in the near future at a cheaper price.

High yielding stocks are old-fashioned which is also reasonable to QE programs, overseas crises and the low interest environment as well.
