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.
