Explanation:  Dividend growth stocks may be valued upon historical relative price/sales and current yield analysis. Dividend stocks trading at a low historical price/sales (P/S) ratio should be viewed more highly to investors due to their depressed valuation versus other higher P/S ratio stocks.  Max P/S price target is based upon company reaching its highest historical P/S ratio.  Dividend stocks should also be viewed favorably when the current yield is above historical readings for the past 10 years.  Further information on evaluating dividend growth candidates can be found at http://seekingalpha.com/author/timothy-mcintosh/articles
