8 Cheap Dividend Growth Stars You Must Know....

Dividend stocks are a passion for me but most of the long-term dividend payer and grower underperformed the market within the recent years.

However, I maintain my strategy because I know what I own and how much return they will deliver over the long-run. I don't care about my friends and other investor colleagues and what they might say about my boring strategy. 

Toady I've screened the market by cheap opportunities, stocks that look fundamentally cheap. It does not mean that they perform well in the near future but they offer a good yield with solid fundamentals which is a good seed of future crops.

My criteria are:

- Dividend growth of more than 5 consecutive years
- Debt-to-equity ratio under 0.5
- Dividend Yield above 3 percent
- Market Cap over $2 billion
- Forward P/E below 15

8 companies survived my screening. Below are the detailed stocks in review.
