I was able to identify a few dividend growth stocks that I find to be attractively valued today. That doesn’t mean that these companies will not decline further in share prices from here. It also doesn’t mean that those are recommendations for you to act upon. These are just a few companies that I believe are attractively valued today, and are likely to grow earnings and dividends over the next decade or so. If that thesis plays out, it is also likely that share prices will grow over time.

The companies include:

The J. M. Smucker Company (SJM) is a manufacturer and marketer of branded food and beverage products and pet food and pet snacks in North America.

Earnings per share grew from $3.03 in 2008 to $5.11 in 2017. The company is expected to earn $7.72/share in 2018. It is selling for close to 20 times earnings and yields 3%.
