In today’s low-interest-rate environment, investors are increasingly looking to dividend stocks when it comes to getting income from their portfolios. That has led to a rise in the prices of many of those stocks, making it harder to find good values among the best dividend payers in the market.
Companies with both good dividends and reasonable prices are still out there, but their low prices tend to reflect risks to their operations that the market is legitimately worried about. These three embarrassingly cheap dividend stocks may end up being incredible combinations of value and income for investors who are willing to brave those risks. If those investors turn out to be right, that combination could turn out to be the foundation of some very strong future returns.
