8 Reliable Dividend Payers To Watch

A stock's dividend yield equals the dollar value of the dividend it pays, divided into the dollar value of the stock that pays it. When the price on that equation gets smaller, the number on the other side of the equation gets bigger -- and the dividend yield increases.


For dividend hunters like me, falling stock prices are good. I will only receive a higher dividend when the company pays the same dividend in the future. Reliability is a key issue when you put money into stocks. 

The most important figure to evaluate business stability is to look at the 10 year fundamentals of the company. If you see earnings changes only at a small level, you might have found a non cyclic business model with a solid dominated market position.

Most of our long-term dividend growth stocks have such a not accounted asset. The price we pay for this invisible value is a premium on the book value on the company accounted assets.

Today I like to show you some interesting Dividend Achievers, stocks with more than 10 years of consecutive dividend growth, with attractive fundamentals.

Here are my screening criteria:

- Beta under 0.5
- 5 Year EPS growth predictions over 5%
- Sales of the past 5 years grown over 5%
- Debt to equity under 0.5

Here are the results in detail...
