7 Cheap Dividend Growth Stocks WIth Double-Digit Return On Assets

Return on assets is the ratio of annual net income to average total assets of a business during a financial year. 

It measures efficiency of the business in using its assets to generate net income. It is a profitability ratio.

I like the ratio because it tells me if a company has a highly profitable business that generates enough income from its invested assets.

The higher the ratio, the more profitable the assets are. I like it really but only a small number of dividend growth stocks have a really big ratio.

Asset Managers are the only cheaply valueated Dividend Champions. I talk about Franklin Resources and Eaton Vance.

Both are not really my favorites right now. Attached I've compiled for you all of the cheapest Dividend Achievers with a double-digit return on assets. Each of the results has a cheap forward P/E ratio.
