When we evaluate dividend growth stocks, we focus on three dividend diplomat stock screening metrics, to determine if the stock is undervalued:

1.) Price to Earnings Ratio Less than the S&P 500 and the competition
2.) Dividend Payout Ratio Less than 60%. This shows the stock can continue to pay the dividend and increase that passive income stream
3.) Dividend Growth Rate: We want to see a history of the dividend increasing, as well as a high dividend growth rate
**Bonus Metric**: The Dividend Yield, which determines how much you get paid to own the stock!

The two dividend stocks that are on the list to buy now, as the stock market has hit turbulence, are T. Rowe Price (TROW) and Leggett & Platt (LEG). Here are the results when reviewing the two stocks that are DOWN over 30% since this time last year.

First, the price to earnings ratios are below 14x forward earnings for both dividend stocks. The S&P 500 currently trades at 20x earnings. Therefore, both dividend growth stocks are undervalued against the stock market.

Second, the dividend payout ratios are both at or below 60%. In fact, T. Rowe price has a perfect dividend payout ratio that is just over 40%. Therefore. TROW has plenty of room to pay AND increase their dividend going forward. LEG is just a tad over 60%, at 60.22%.

Third, dividend growth. That's what these 2 cheap dividend stocks have in common. Both dividend stocks have increased dividends for OVER 25 years. In fact, LEG has increased their dividend for over 50 years! Leg is a dividend KING! Now, what about the growth rate, because inflation is also at all time highs? LEG is just about 5%, so slightly below the current rate of inflation. TROW, though, rocks an amazingly high dividend growth rate, with a growth rate over 13%!

Lastly, as you know, the dividend yields are high for these two dividend stocks. TROW is just at 4%, at 3.94%. Then, LEG comes in hot with a 4.48% dividend yield! You are definitely getting paid to own these stocks, much higher than your savings rate at your bank.

Both Dividend Diplomats are saying they would buy T. Rowe under $120 and Leggett & Platt below $36! Those are their price points that they'd add to their current stock positions.
