Dividend Growth And Buyback Kings Combined: 5 Top Picks Right Now!

In a cheap credit environment, companies with about a 10% debt-to-capital ratio would be better served by borrowing more to accelerate buybacks and reduce share count. The smart use of debt is a key tenet of balance-sheet optimization.

Buybacks and dividends are great ways to unlock shareholder values. The past has shown that both strategies work well for long-term orientated investors but you need to watch careful the market valuation.

I'm looking for companies trading at a 30%-40% discount to intrinsic value, based on the potential optimization of the balance sheet. Incentive structures based on return on capital, total shareholder return and economic value added are more important than factors based on top-line growth.

Attached are 5 big names with solid dividends that offer a great risk premium right now.

These are the results:
