7 Attractive Dividend Growth Stocks With Solid Yields And Low Price Ratios

Recently the Federal Reserve downgraded its expectations for inflation going forward, Fed watchers concluded that September would be the earliest that hiking would begin, and even then it would proceed at a much slower pace than previously feared.

I can nothing change in the Fed policy which will ever be offensive because the aim is to simulate the economy. Yes, markets could be overvalued due to low manipulated interest rates but even in a broadly overpriced U.S. market, we can still find solid deals on dividend stocks. If bought at a reasonable price, a good dividend stock offers both a competitive current yield and a strong probability of dividend growth.

Here are seven Dividend Achievers, stocks with a history of growing dividends of more than 10 consecutive years, with attractive fundamentals. The forward P/E is under 15 while earnings are expected to grow by more than 5 percent over the next five years. Sales also grew by more than 5 percent yearly in the past years.

If you are looking for more stocks with an attractive valuation, you should real my articles from this category.
