20 Dividend Stocks With 4%+ Yield And Growth Ambitions

One of the smartest moves you can make before, during, and after a market correction is to load your portfolio with high-quality dividend-paying companies. 

Not only have companies that pay a dividend historically outperformed publicly listed companies that don't pay a dividend, but they offer other advantages as well. To begin with, the willingness of a company to pay a regular dividend signifies the health of its business model and portends that it likely has a positive long-term growth outlook.

In order to catch the highest yielding growth opportunities from the market that might offer low risk, if selected a few high yielders from the dividend growth space with future growth prospects.

These are my main criteria:

- 5-Year earnings growth forecast over 5 percent
- Over 4% dividend yield
- Consecutive dividend growth history over 10 years
- Market Cap over 2 billion

20 stocks fulfilled the above mentioned criteria of which 7 have a low forward P/E.

Here are 6 of my favorites….

    1. If you have a long focus on stocks, some energy MLPs look as a bargain right now. But what you need to calculate is a high volatility. It's also possible that the debt rises or the number of outstanding share grow without quid pro quo.
