13 Dividend Grower With A Strong Buy Rating

Let's take a look at stocks with a current strong buy rating. That's the highest recommendation level a stock can achieve.

The focus is limited on stocks with a dividend growth history of 10 or more years. In total, 13 stocks fulfilled my strong buy rating criteria of which three are High-Yields.

Most of the results have a small market capitalization and offer a higher risk than large and mega caps with billions of free cash flows.

The top results are also full pumped with debt. That's not a good sign. What do you think about the results?


These are the 6 top yielding results....
