Great Dividend Growth Stocks With Several Break-Out Signals

Do you know the feeling of when you buy a stock and nothing happens over years?


It's very disappointing to put money into a great stock for that you have done the right research and nothing happens because the market doesn’t discover the potential of your target company.


Timing is also important for stock investors. On the capital market, you can make 100 percent in only six months if you catch the right purchasing time and you can make the same performance over ten years. Both is possible but its definitely better to take the first option.

I'm personally a long-term growth investor and more focused on fundamentals than on technical indicators but those can help you to receive a better return.


Today I try to find some stocks that have risen over the short and mid-term. I used a 20 day to 200 day average to get some great stock ideas. These are my fundamental criteria:

Dividend yield over 2%.
Dividend growth rate over the past five years greater than 5%.
The dividend payout is under 75%.
The forward P/E is below 15.
The PEG ratio is under 1.50.
Total debt to equity under 0.40.

These are my favorite results:
