8 High Growth Dividend Aristocrats With Upside Potential

Investing in stocks involves risk -- there's no way around that fact. 

But you can lessen the amount of risk you take on by having a diversified portfolio, one that includes steady, high-probability growth in addition to those volatile equities that could soar or sputter.

With that in mind, below I'll highlight three stocks that have a lower risk profile than most. These aren't necessarily investments that you can buy and forget for the next decade, but they're also unlikely to plummet on account of some minor shift in their industry.

These companies are all leaders in their respective markets, have a record of market-thumping growth, and yet their valuations won't leave shareholders overly exposed to a large stock price decline.

Each of the results have a forward P/E under 20 while earnings are expected to grow by more than 10 percent for each of the next five years.

These are the results...
