Dividend Investors Should Research These 10 Stocks - July 2016

Summary

All of these companies are rated as suitable for the Enterprising Investor following the ModernGraham approach.

All ten are found to be significantly undervalued according to the ModernGraham valuation model.

The ten companies are found to have the highest dividend yield out of all undervalued companies which qualify for the Enterprising Investor.

There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham Valuation Model, I've selected ten undervalued companies for the Enterprising dividend stock investor. These companies have the highest dividend yields among the undervalued companies reviewed by ModernGraham, which are suitable for the Enterprising Investor according to the ModernGraham approach.

Defensive Investors are defined as investors who are not able or willing to do substantial research into individual investments, and therefore need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk. Each company suitable for the Defensive Investor is also suitable for Enterprising Investors.

The companies selected for this list may not pay what some consider to be a huge dividend, but they have demonstrated strong financial positions through passing the requirements of the Enterprising Investor and show potential for capital growth based on their current price in relation to intrinsic value. As such, these defensive dividend stocks may be a great investment if they prove to be suitable for your portfolio after your own additional research.

KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR)

KKR & Co. L.P. is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Undervalued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $0.44 in 2011 to an estimated $1.23 for 2015. This level of demonstrated earnings growth outpaces the market's implied estimate of 0.58% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on Benjamin Graham's formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value above the price.

Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE:STWD)

Starwood Property Trust, Inc. is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the insufficient earnings stability over the last ten years, and the poor dividend history. The Enterprising Investor has no initial concerns. As a result, all Enterprising Investors following the ModernGraham approach should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.
