9 Dividend Stocks Trading at a Double-Digit Discount
Getting a discount of 10%, 20% or even more is awesome. When it is on a big ticket item like a automobile, there are a lot of dollars to be saved and people have been known to drive great distances to receive the discount. Everyone loves a sale!
Well, maybe not everyone. When stocks go on sale it seems to depress a large number of market participants. However, for those of us that like buying stocks at a discount, a market pullback provides us a little relief.
My fair value model was constructed back in 2007 at a time many stocks had already fell from grace. It was designed to focus on only the best companies. I took an extremely conservative stance with my model. Ultimately, determining fair value requires the investor to accurately forecast free cash flow, dividend growth rates and other metrics on a forward looking basis, which is no simple task.
This week week, I screened my dividend growth stocks database for select stocks trading at a double-digit discount. The results are presented below:

As with past screens, the data presented above is in its raw form. Some of the the companies would be disqualified for low yields and/or poor dividend fundamentals. However some of the others may be worth additional due diligence.
My database, D4L-Data, is an Open Office spreadsheet containing more than 20 columns of information on the 220+ companies that I track. The data is sortable and has built-in buttons and macros to make it easy to use. Companies included in the list are those that have had a history of dividend growth. The D4L-Data spreadsheet is a part of D4L-Premium Services and is updated each Saturday for subscribers.
