14 Cheap Regional Banks With A Long Dividend Growth History

The banking sector has certainly come a long way since the financial crisis. Banks are better capitalized, have less risky loans and other assets, and are taking steps to operate more efficiently. There are some good investment opportunities in the banking sector.

My focus about high quality banks were on regional banks with a long dividend growth history. 25 stocks are available for trading that met these tight fundamental criteria.

Today I like to focus on those with a low forward P/E. Only 14 are part of my results which you can find in the attached list.

  1. Good stuff, Tom. AROW is new to me. 3.55%, 21 straight years of dividend growth, and only paying out about 50% of earnings as dividends. Looks like a winner.

    CTBI looks even better, but it was already on my radar.
