5 Mid-Caps With Low Valuation, Above-Average Dividend Yields And Above-Average Growth

2012-02-14

Mid-cap stocks can be an interesting asset class for investors seeking above-average capital appreciation. Due to their smaller size they offer the potential for easier above-average growth and are theoretically not as risky as small-caps or micro-caps. When you can find mid-caps that also offer dividends you’re offered an additional bonus. However, this particular asset class does require a more comprehensive due diligence effort.

The following table summarizes five mid-cap dividend growth stocks that appear to be attractively valued, and lists them in order of dividend yield highest to lowest. From left to right, the table shows the company’s stock symbol and name. Next, two valuation metrics are listed side-by-side, the current P/E ratio followed by the historical normal P/E ratio for perspective.

The final three columns show the current dividend yield, the company sector and its market cap.
