10 Really Cheap Dividend Stocks To Look For

The only thing that is better than buying the stock of a great company is buying a stock of a great company at a low price.

While there aren't a whole lot of companies out there selling at decent discounted prices these days -- the market is hitting all-time highs, after all -- there's still a decent handful of stocks that investors should consider if they want to buy a company on the cheap.

After all, picks trading that low often have gone through hard times. And while you can sometimes catch a falling knife and make a bundle on a swing trade, cheap dividend stocks are inherently long-term investments.

I mean, what’s the point of buying an income investment only to trade out of it before the ex-dividend date?

As the old saying goes, price is what you pay but value is what you get. So instead, investors should look at valuation metrics and payout ratios to determine which are the best cheap dividend stocks to buy now.

So we run a stock screener to find stocks currently trading for a 'cheap' price. There came a lot results but we like to share the best in our view with you.

These are the results...
