Explanation:  Dividend growth financial stocks may be valued upon historical relative price/book value and current yield analysis. Dividend financial stocks trading at a low historical price/book value (P/BV) ratio should be viewed more highly to investors due to their depressed valuation versus other higher P/BV ratio stocks.  Max P/BV price target is based upon company reaching its highest historical P/BV ratio.  Dividend stocks should also be viewed favorably when the current yield is above historical readings for the past 10 years.
