Attractive Long-Term Dividend Growth Stocks

I made good money with dividend growth stocks but I also lost big values with stock trading. Most of the stock losses are mid-term caused and reasonable to lower capitalized stocks which looked cheap at the time of purchasing but the market turned into the wrong direction.

In general, I love it to buy higher capitalized and well diversified stocks that have a good growth potential.

Today, I've screened the Dividend Champions database by stocks with 10 billion plus market capitalization as well as forward P/E of less than 20. In addition, stocks from the screen should have a solid debt-to-equity ratio below the 0.5 mark and growth should be estimated at 5 percent level for the next half decade.

I've listed the 5 top yielding stocks below. The lowest yielder is Emerson Electric with a 2.63 percent dividend yield. It's a good sign that stocks are still available for acceptable earnings multiples to fight inflation.

The top 5 dividend stocks are...
