3 Top Dividend Stocks For A Buy Consideration

The S&P 500 is trading near its all-time high, but that doesn't mean there aren't bargains to be found in the markets. 

In fact, I'd argue that several high-profile companies are trading for cheap valuations right now, and many of them even offer up big dividend yields.

Let's look at three dividend-paying stocks currently trading for below market multiples. These are names I think you can safely purchase today.

Here are the results...
