8 Fast Growing Dividend Champions With Real Values And Low Valuation Ratios

As many dividend-growth investors know, investing in dividend-paying companies is a lot more than simply picking stocks from the Dividend Champion list.

The true power of dividend investing lies within the compounding effect of dividend growth over the years. Finding the "growth" factor in such companies is the hard part.

Some investors are blinded by the past growth while others ignore several metrics to the profit of higher yielding companies. It's more than hard to work to discover the real values in a company.

Growth is more important than yield. A true fact but often, a fast growing company fails to gain momentum growth. Each bigger company suffers to speed up growth. As a result, the high valuation will also come down. This is in general not bad. I use this opportunity to buy stocks if the outlook is still bright.

Attached you can find a few dividend champions that offer both, growth and value for you. I've selected those 30 stocks that have grown dividends over the past 10 years at the fastest pace. Only eight of them have a P/E under 15. Attached you can find lists, the low P/E and 20 highest yielding fastest 30.

Here are the top results...
