Off-the-Radar Dividend Growth Stocks

Investors are increasingly turning to equities in order to find alternatives to bonds, whose yields have dropped to levels so low that the income may be insufficient and the price risk, should interest rates rise, too great. For investors willing to invest out to ten years but not willing to take credit risk, U.S. Treasury notes offer yield-to-maturity of about 1.6%. One can purchase corporate bonds or mortgages to boost the yields a bit, but the returns are still rather low. The Barclays Aggregate Bond index, which is broadly diversified by maturity and credit, has a yield of just 2%.

Using Baseline, I wanted to run a screen for you focused on finding promising candidates to review more closely. The screen resulted in a dozen companies fitting the criteria, but here are the 5 with market caps less than $4 billion: American Greetings Corp. (AM), BOK Financial Corporation (BOKF), Crane Co. (CR), Owens & Minor Inc. (OMI) and Williams-Sonoma Inc. (WSM).
