Currently trading just above $49 per share, off from its 52 week high of $60.97. Pays a 2.5% dividend. Has raised its dividend for 39 years straight (soon to be 40), and still only has a 23% payout ratio. Trading at a price/earnings ratio of below 12, and is less volatile than the market as a whole (with a beta of .95).

If you're looking for a big, stable, growing dividend stock trading on the cheap, Target is a great bet with the odds stacked squarely in your favor...
