Slept on Stocks Part 2

Hello Again! Here are more stocks that are slept on. When I first began looking into dividend stocks I realized a lot of people preferred to stick to stocks that did not fit my goals. They played it safe with stocks that did good but cost a pretty penny. I am aiming for stocks that fit my budget but also do well. I plan to live off my 401K plus my dividend stocks. Part 1 and 2 showcase stocks that often get overlooked and do not fit the mold of what a portfolio looks like. I hope this second list helps you and earn you some good cash come retirement time.
