5 Dividend Stocks At Discounted Prices

A dividend stock investor would naturally assume that with the stock market being so strong over the past three months, it would be difficult to find solid paying dividend stocks at reasonable prices.

However, in perusing through the list of our top tanked dividend stocks, several candidates emerge as good value even as the Dow Jones Industrial Average is hitting all-time price highs.

The fact is that there are still a bountiful amount of dividend gems to be ferreted out by smart investors. 

I ran our screener and looked for those stocks that were down 10% in the past three months with dividend yields over 2%.

The stock list primarily comes from the utility, health care and consumer staples sectors. Each company’s stock price has suffered as more economically sensitive sectors have taken off, including financial, industrial and energy stocks.

Here is an examination of the five outstanding dividend stocks that should be on your radar screen at discounted prices.
