10 Cheaply Valuated Stocks Boosting Earnings For The Next Years

Companies delivering superior growth in sales and earnings tend to be winning names over the long term. However, these companies rarely sell for low valuations, so you generally need to pay premium prices for top-growth stocks. With this in mind, it makes sense to look for strong-growth companies going through temporary challenges and trading at convenient valuations.

I've created a screen of dividend paying stocks with a solid growth momentum. Those stocks have shown investors increasing sales over years while analysts predicting a rosy future. Earnings should grow for the mid-term at double-digit rates.

In addition, my focus is on higher capitalized stocks with a lower beta and debt. Twelve stocks fulfilled my criteria of which one has a yield of more than 3 percent and ten are recommended to buy.

These are the highest yielding results:
