7 Of The Most Underestimated Dividend Stocks

It's hard to define a solid investing criterion which could bring you solid gains while excluding the big risks. 

I personally believe in dividends as a safe haven criteria because cash you have received in the past could compensate a potential loss. 

For sure, this is not a good return driver, especially when we are talking about yields of 1-2 percent yearly, but each penny sums to dollars if you compile enough of them.

Today I run my daily screen about cheap dividend paying stocks with double-digit earnings growth forecasts for the next five years. 

In addition, the stocks have a very comfortable debt situation, measured by a debt-to-equity ratio of less than 0.5.

These are my favorites from the screening results:
