9 Really Cheap Dividend Aristocrats

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett built his $60 billion-plus fortune by buying high-quality businesses at discounts. The Oracle of Omaha summed up his love for bargains with this quote: "Whether we're talking about socks or stocks, I like buying quality merchandise when it is marked down."

Focus on high quality and buy it at cheap prices, that's the key to get rich. One way to find cheap high-quality dividend paying stocks is to search the lists of long-term dividend growth stocks by market price multipes.

Today I will share a few of the longest dividend growers with really cheap price levels, measured by a low forward P/E.

Dividend Aristocrats are those unique kinds of stocks that rarely go on sale. For more than 25 years, these companies have been churning out ever-increasing dividend payments that show they are more than capable of handling the ups and downs of the economy -- or their respective industry cycles.

Every once in a while, though, the market forgets the long-term earnings power of these companies, and their stocks become good bargains.

Here are the cheapest Dividend Aristocrats now...
