17 Stocks With Strong Balance Sheets And Growing Dividends

It's better to put money into stocks with growing dividends and strong balance sheets and a solid outlook. For sure you should not expect high rolling returns at triple digit rates but over decades you can expect to grow your invesment.

Stressed assets look like big bargains but you have a face a much bigger risk. Today I would like to focus on those stocks that offer less riks due to a strong balance sheet.


Stong balance sheets have many stocks. Some got a fresh capital injection and swim in cash but their business is cyclic and loses money. Those stocks are not the kind of investment I'm looking for.


In today's screen I've focused on stocks with a 10 year consecutive dividend growth. It's a strong indicator for a stable business.
