7 Cheap Dividend Aristocrats With Solid Yields And Growth Perspectives

When you’re looking for dividend stocks to get behind, you want to make sure to go with a combination of current yield as well as the potential for dividend growth over the years. 

Not every high-yielding stock on the market today started as a big payer — in fact, most didn’t.

I screened the market by the cheapest Dividend Aristocrats with solid earnings growth for the next five years. Seven stocks jumped into my screen.

These are my criteria in detail:

- Dividend Aristocrat
- EPS growth forecast for the next five years over 5%
- Forward P/E under 15

With that in mind, here are seven can’t-miss dividend stocks to buy today:
