Dividend Champions with high beta ratios and a low valuation originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. The Dividend Champions list is a compressed compilation of stocks with the longest dividend growth history. Those stocks raised their cash dividend payments over a period of more than 25 years.
In my current article serial, I write about high beta stocks and the possibility to make more money in a bullish market with high beta stocks. High beta stocks are stronger correlated with the market and can result in a higher performance.
Today I would like to observe those Dividend Champions with a beta ratio above one as well as a forward P/E below 15. It's very important to make sure that the companies are cheap because only with a high initial earnings yield you can increase the possibility of a good long-term total return. Thirteen stocks fulfilled the above mentioned criteria of which ten are currently recommended to buy.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 24.32 and forward P/E ratio is 13.18. The dividend yield has a value of 2.13 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.35 and price to sales ratio 1.32. The operating margin amounts to 13.69 percent and the beta ratio is 1.33. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.48.
