20 Dividend Aristocrats With Double-Digit Earnings Growth Forecasts

Each growth investor needs to take a look at future earnings growth. The higher the expected earnings growth, the bigger the valuation multiples of the corporate but the art is not to overpay a growth company and to balance growth and price.

Of course, when you’re searching for impressive earnings growth, you also want to make sure the companies in question are big enough to offer some stability, and traded with enough volume to provide some liquidity.

It's always good to make first selection with high-quality stocks. One way is to screen only the Dividend Aristocrats Index.
