12 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Buy Today in 2018 - 1 of 13


 
The markets are off to a strong start in 2017 and major markets are trading at near all-time highs. The Dow is hovering around 21,000 and the S&P 500 is trading near 2,400. S&P 500 stocks are trading at nearly 25 times their annual earnings, well above historical norms.

At the same time, interest rates are near all time lows. 10-year Treasuries are yielding just 2.3% and collectively S&P 500 stocks are yielding under 2%. Some investors think that it's too challenging to find safe and affordable securities that pay 4%, 5% and even 6% yields.

Searching for yield isn't easy in an environment where high asset prices have driven down dividend yields, but there are a few meaningful options to find yield. With interest rates slowly beginning to rise, investors have found dividend stocks slightly less attractive. This has created a small group of cheap dividend stocks to buy, many of which have yields twice as large as the 10-year Treasury.

Let's review some of the best cheap dividend stocks in the market today in this slideshow.
