20 Solid Dividend Growth Stocks With A Reasonable Pricing

When we look for good investments, we do have a strong focus on stocks with cheap price ratios, solid growth forecasts and solid debt ratios as well.

As a reader of my blog, you might know that I'm creating screens on a regular basis with these input factors. 

Today I've discovered my dividend grower’s lists with the following criteria:

- 5 year earnings growth forecasts over 5 percent yearly
- Debt-to-equity ratio under 0.5
- Low forward P/E
- Market capitalization over 2 billion

20 stocks fulfilled my criteria of which 13 yield over 2 percent. Insurer and banks are dominating the results. Those belong to the financial sector and offer risks due to the link to the financial market who might offer external shocks.

These are my favorite stocks from the list. Attached, you can find my full results with some essential fundamentals. Which do you like? Please let me know.

These are the results:

    Tom, I'm curious why ORI with it's 4.8% dividend, is not one of your "favorite stocks from the list".

    ORI is the only one of the 20 in my own portfolio, although I've been considering adding QCOM.

    1. Thanks Howard,
      I've tried to keep the number of selected stocks low. ORI is a great pick but the competition was very hard.
