8 Dividend Achievers With A Single P/E - A Compilation Of The Cheapest Dividend Growth Stocks

Before investors blindly pile in here, they need to consider that “cheap stocks” are almost always cheap for a reason.

That reason may be the company’s business segment, it may be due to missteps by management or it may be due to outside pressures that make investors nervous.

Generally speaking, stocks trading under 10 times earnings do not have much growth. Growth stocks tend to be valued at multiples above the market, if their growth trend is expected to continue.

In todays screen for stocks under 10 times earnings, we evaluated large-cap companies, with easily recognized company names in mind.

Only one of these eight stocks have a market value under a baseline of $1 billion to $10 billion and three are valued over $10 billion, a measure for large cap companies.

These stocks all have raised dividends over more than 10 consecutive years while the forward P/E is below 10. The valuations of 10 times earnings and less were based on Thomson Reuters consensus estimates for 2015 and 2016.

Here are the results of the cheapest Dividend Achievers:
