17 Dividend Challengers With A Strong Buy Rating

Today I would like to take a look at the recommendations from brokerage firms or analysts. 

I analyzed the Dividend Challengers group (stocks with more than 5 years of consecutive dividend growth) by the current recommendations.

Seventeen of the stocks have a current strong buy rating. Attached you will find a full list with some fundamentals.

It's a little bit easier to join the club of Dividend Challengers than to be a Dividend King, Champion, Aristocrat or Contender.

Here are my favorites from the screen...
