20 Dogs Of Dividend Achievers With Yields Up To 8.52%

While I'm thinking every day about stocks and their valuation, I decided to create a Chart of the cheapest Dividend Achievers with growth potential.

I call the screening results "Dogs of Dividend Achievers" because they raised dividends over more than 10 consecutive years while having a forward P/E below 15 with a 5%+ earnings growth forecast. 

Below you can find the 20 best results with a 2 billion plus market capitalization. I don't like smaller capitalized stocks because of their lack of liquidly and low diversification. They can get ill very fast.

Here are the top yielding Dividend Achiever Dogs....

  1. That's another good list, Tom. Other than APU, they all seem to be earning enough to keep paying dividends.

    I've always had a minimum requirement of "10 years without a dividend decrease". But I'm now paying more attention to how many years in a row companies have increased their dividends. There are some big differences in the companies you listed:

    APU 11
    VZ 10
    ORI 34
    NUE 42
    SON 33
    IBM 20
    CMI 10
    QCOM 13

    It seems obvious to me that a company with a 34-year streak (like ORI, which I own) has more at stake than a company with a 10-year streak (like VZ, which I also own) when it considers a decision to decrease its dividend.

    Yesterday I added EMR (58 years) and PG (59 years) to my portfolio. CMI was under consideration, but its streak is only 10 years.

    1. 10 years without a dividend decrease is also a good criteria. If you include these you will definitly finde more stocks. Today, We are focused on 500 with the strict rule.

      For me right now, Industials, Insurer and Energy are in my main focus...

      Best wishes and thanks for your comment..
