Interested in finding stocks that pay reliable dividends? Do you prefer stocks that are projected to grow over the next year? Do you prefer stocks that analysts rate as 'Buy'? You might be interested in this list.

EPS growth (earnings per share growth) illustrates the growth of earnings per share over time. The 1-Year Expected EPS Growth Rate is an annual growth estimate, where the growth projections are made by analysts, the company or other credible sources.

We first looked for dividend stocks. Next, we then screened for businesses that are considered high-growth, with 1-year projected EPS growth above 25%. From here, we looked for companies that analysts rate as "Buy" (2 < mean recommendation < 3). We did not screen out any market caps or sectors.

Do you think these stocks deserve to grow higher? Use our list to help with your own analysis.
