12 Faster Growing Dividend Stocks With An Attractive Pricing

The current market environment is presenting many challenges to the conservative retired investor in need of current income. Interest rates are near all-time lows and the valuations of many blue-chip dividend growth stocks have become extended.

It is becoming very difficult to find quality investment opportunities that can provide safety through sound valuation, attractive yield and the potential to fight inflation. Most of my recent work has been focused on presenting attractively valued, high quality, higher yielding dividend growth stocks for consideration by retired investors.

Consequently, my primary focus has been on above-average yield, safety and dividend growth. Stated more plainly, my objective was to present high quality income and income growth investments over total return investments.

My quest to find 10 faster growing dividend stocks that were also attractively valued proved challenging. As I screened the universe, I did come up with just over 30 stocks that I initially found attractive based solely on valuation.

However, as I begin looking for above-average earnings growth, my choices dwindled rapidly. Nevertheless, my screens produced 12 stocks that I felt met the above reader's requirements, and more importantly, that also met some important considerations of my own.

These are the top results...
