8 Cheap Long-Term Dividend Growth Stocks Growing At Double-Digit Rates

I like dividend growth stocks and they should be bought at a reasonable price. If so, you can expect a solid return on your invested capital.

One important criteria to measure this issue is the PEG ratio. Toady I will not use this ratio but therefore stay at the P/E and EPS growth figures.

Well, I screened the Dividend Contenders list, stocks with consecutive dividend growth of more than 10 year, by the cheapest stocks with double-digit EPS growth expectations.

These are the criteria in detail:

- Market Capitalization over 2 billion
- EPS growth for the next five years over 10%
- Return on Assets over 10%
- Sales growth over the past 5 year's positive
- Low Forward P/E
- Debt/Equity under 1

Only eight stocks fulfilled my criteria. These are the results...
