  • 5 Most Cheaply Dividend Stocks On The Stock Market

    I know how hard it is to find real investment opportunities. I personally bought some insurance stocks in the past because those are relatively cheap valuated and they offer a little upside with rising interest rates, despite the fact that they also could get hurt due the their huge fixed income portfolio.

    Within the dividend growth community, some traders have announced that they have put Deere stocks into their portfolio. I also own stocks of Deere because its one of the leading companies within the farm and soft commodity space.

    Below are five dividend ideas with single-digit forward P/E ratios and positive earnings growth for the next five years while debt ratios are acceptable.

    These are the criteria in detail:

    - Forward P/E under 10

    - 5Y future earnings growth positive

    - Large Caps

    - Dividends positive

    - Long-term debt-to-equity under 1

    The selection is not huge. Attached is also a list with all details from the screen. Nine stocks are in focus of the screen.

  • 3 United Dividend Kings To Buy

    As you might know, I love stocks that increase dividends, not because I'm an event driven investor, but because I love it to see that the company has a good running operational business and wants to share its success with their shareholders.

    The tweet came from a Guy named @UKDividendKings. I check out his site and saw his impressing work. He compiled all stocks from the FTSE 350 with more than 10 consecutive years of dividend growth in a list.

    Check out the list here...42 UK Dividend Kings

    For sure, I never thought that there were so many companies with a long history of consecutive dividend growth. I knew that the American market offers around 500 or a few companies but 41 in the UK?

    Well, back to the list, I love the overview with dividend cover ratio and picked a few companies that I personally like or I often hear from.

    Tesco is not on the list but pays one of the highest yields but the market rumors that Tesco will cut future dividends. There are also rumors about Vodafone's dividend safeness.

    The list shows a dividend cover ratio of 1.59.
    My favorite UK-Dividend Kings are...
