Ever since the broad market indexes entered into bear market territory, I have been checking the dividend champions list for bargains. I came up with the following dividend stocks list, using my screen criteria:
1) Company has consistently increased dividends for more than 25 consecutive years
2) The P/E ratio is less than 20
3) The Dividend Payout Ratio does not exceed 50%
4) The dividend yield is equal to or higher than the dividend yield on the S&P 500
Using the criteria above I came out with the following list:
As usual this list is just a starting point. Before you leap into buying these stocks always check out at least the ten year financials trends in order to determine how your potential investment has performed over time. I would like to finish this post with two quotes from the legendary investor Warren Buffett:( Source Wikiquote)
“What doesn’t work is when you start doing things that you don't understand or because they worked last week for somebody else. “
"There are all kinds of businesses that Charlie and I don't understand, but that doesn't cause us to stay up at night. It just means we go on to the next one, and that's what the individual investor should do."
