10 Cheapest Dividend Champions

Dividend growth matters for your wealth growth beacuse if you are getting more money from your investments, you will expect to see rising asset values.

A great year for dividend growth stocks is one in which there are few dividend cuts and fewer companies that failed to raise their dividends at the expected time.

I've shown several stocks on my blog that have paid dividends for decades but run then flat for a while due to special economic situations. It does not mean that the company is a bad one because they did not hike their dividend each year.

Today I like to introduce those stocks with more than 25 years of consecutive dividend growth, positive earnigns expectations as well as a low forward P/E.

These are the cheapest results...
