My Favorite Dividend Contender Picks For 2013
Everybody loves dividends and dividend growth and everybody wanted to buy high dividend stocks with growth potential as well. But making money with stocks is not easy. It's more than buying cheap stocks and selling them at a higher price. You need to take care of your risks and your trading limits.
I love stocks with rising sales and earnings that increase their distributions to shareholders every year. For me as investor, it is a great source to boost my dividend income without hard work. That's the main reason why I am looking for buy opportunities of best dividend paying stocks worldwide. Today I like to progress with my best dividend picks for 2013. I screened my Dividend Contenders database by cheap stocks to buy with interesting valuation figures.
Dividend Contenders are "middle class" dividend growth stocks. They raised their dividend payments over a period of more than 10 consecutive years but less than 25 years. For the time being, 180 Contenders are available for stock trading. I selected only those with a market capitalization over USD 2 billion, a forward P/E ratio of less than 15 as well as double-digit expected earnings per share growth. In addition, the company should have shown a past sales growth of more than 10 percent yearly and the operating margin should be over 10 percent. Thirteen wonderful dividend growth stocks fulfilled these criteria of which eleven are currently rated with a buy or strong buy.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
