Dividend Champions With Over 15% Earnings Growth

Some people say that growth can justify each price. That might be truth but means also that most the risk is assigned to the investor.

When Twitter and Facebook have valuation multiples of over 50x of the expected earnings, you have to fear of downside when the growth does not come.

I love investing on classical fundamentals like P/E, CAPEX, Free Cash-Flow, net debt ratios and business predictability.

It's only a small idea of my criteria I do check when I discover a company. Let me mention one thing: There is no perfect stock that fulfills all of the essential criteria.

Today I like to show you some of the fastet growing stocks within the Dividend Champions League. Those stocks have risen dividends over more than 25 consecutive years and forecast EPS growth of more than 15%.

Many smaller capitalized stocks are on the attached list. It's easily to understand that smaller companies can growth faster because of their size in relation to the market potential but when you look at Apple you also may understand that it's only a question of definition. Each company, whoever great it may be, should grow at a high rate.
