Twelve Cheap Dividend Aristocrats With Buy Or Better Recommendation
Dividend Aristocrats with low P/E's and buying recommendations originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. We all love a growing dividend and one of the most popular indices that cover the best dividend growth stocks is the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats index.
The index has currently 54 constituents. My goal in this article is to show you the currently cheapest stocks from the Dividend Aristocrats Index with current buy or better ratings.

Only twelve stocks fulfilled both, a forward P/E below 15 combined with a buy or better rating by brokerage firms. Half of the results have a projected double-digit mid-term earnings growth forecast.

Only eighteen stocks have an expected P/E under 15! That's only one third of the full database and only around 20 percent of all Aristocrats are recommended to buy.
