10 Of The Most Promising Dow Jones Stocks

Today I've tried to find a particular type of equity from the Dow Jones Index: high-quality dividend growth stocks with strong competitive advantages suitable for long-term investors.

These stocks have a mix of a low price-to-earnings ratio, high dividend yield, low stock-price-volatility, and high growth rate.

The Dow Jones is one of the top indices in the world and covers the biggest dividend paying stocks. It's the real american capitalism.

My criteria also included the following onces:

- Total return
- Payout ratio
- Dividend yield
- Historical growth rate
- Price-to-earnings ratio
- Stock price standard deviation and beta ratio

Here are the results from the latest screen. Which do you like?
