6 Cheap Dividend Aristocrats With A Current Buy Rating

Despite the almost constant chatter on whether the Federal Reserve raises rates this week, many top strategists on Wall Street are convinced the Fed holds off until at least December, and maybe until 2017.

While Fed Chair Janet Yellen and members of the Federal Open Market Committee may start to ramp up a more hawkish tone at the end of the year, any interest rate increases will be very patient and deliberate.

The 2016 S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats list includes 51 companies that have increased dividends (not just remained the same) for 25 years straight. Keep in mind that just because they are on this list now doesn’t mean in the future they will be forced to reduce their dividend.

Today we screened the list for cheap stocks with a Buy rating. Six stocks from the index matched our criteria.

Here are the results...

  1. It's kind of funny just reading this. I just added to my position in T and took up a position on ABBV. Both solid buys right now.
