  • 18 Cool Dividend Growth Large Caps For A Hot Market

    What stocks can we buy when the market hits new highs on a regular basis?

    I'm really scared about the ease to trade stocks at such high levels. Markets are valuated far above 20 P/E multiples and the Dollar becomes more and more attractive for foreign investors.

    When I look into my dividend stock database, I also see skyrocket price ratios. For sure there are some pretty good stocks in my sheets with deep values but normal investors don't should expect such a big growth for the near future that can justify this valuation.

    Today I like to give you some ideas about good growing stocks with a solid dividend growth history and a low debt figure as well.

    These are my criteria:

    - Large Capitalization (+ 10 Billion USD)

    - Expected EPS Growth over 10%

    - P/E below 20

    - Debt-To-Equity under 0.5

    - Consecutive Dividend Payments over 10 years

    18 stocks fulfilled my criteria. Not much but some ideas. Would I buy them? I'm not sure. I think that more and more volatility is coming into the market and this could also mean that it is possible to buy them in the near future at a cheaper price.

    High yielding stocks are old-fashioned which is also reasonable to QE programs, overseas crises and the low interest environment as well.

    These are my 4 favorite results:

    T. Rowe Price Group (NASDAQ:TROW) has a market capitalization of $21.75 billion. The company employs 5,824 people, generates revenue of $3,484.20 million and has a net income of $1,047.70 million.

    T. Rowe Price Group's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $1,728.40 million. The EBITDA margin is 49.61 percent (the operating margin is 47.00 percent and the net profit margin 30.07 percent).

    Financials: The total debt represents 0.00 percent of T. Rowe Price Group's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 0.00 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 23.97 percent was realized by T. Rowe Price Group.

    Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $4.43. Last fiscal year, T. Rowe Price Group paid $1.52 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 18.92, the P/S ratio is 6.24 and the P/B ratio is finally 4.56. The dividend yield amounts to 2.10 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.42. - See more at: 18 Cool Dividend Growth Large Caps For A Hot Market...
