20 Defensive Dividend Growth Stocks With Potential To Create Values In The Future

Investors have just been reminded that the stock market can finally have a formal correction. A drop of more than 500 points on Friday has put the Dow Jones Industrial Average down just over 10% from its highs, and the S&P 500 is down over 7% from its highs.

While selling trends had been in place prior to this past week, 6% of that 10% drop, or 60% of the total correction, took place last week alone. The trend that has survived in the past four years or so now is that investors have bought each and every stock market pullback.

This week’s dismal end also came on what was the last Friday of summer for many families in America, so lots of would-be buyers were simply not around to have an interest in the market, whether it was going up or going down.

I made most of my capital gains in finical turmoil’s by owning low beta stocks, large caps with a high diversification worldwide. For sure, you will not make money if you overpay a corporate.

However, here are a few attractive valuated dividend growers that could be potential stocks if the sell-off reaches a broader audience. My main criteria are positive growth in the past and expected earnings growth for the future. 

In addition, forward P/E is fewer than 15 while the beta ratio is the lowest on the results, reaching a high value of 0.73. Attached is a full compilation of the 20 best results by beta values.

These are my favorites...
