If you're a serious investor in dividend stocks, you know that a high yield alone simply isn't enough. You have to know that a dividend is sustainable, and that the underlying company has decent prospects for the future.
One industry that investors have abandoned as having zero prospects is printing. As more and more newspapers and magazines transition to electronic formats, investors have assumed these businesses are dead.
But that may not necessarily be the case, and by investigating the situation, you may be able to buy two big dividend stocks while they're still cheap.
R.R. Donnelley & Sons (NASDAQ: RRD )

I will compare Apache based on EV/EBITDA valuation, which is most relevant for Oil and Gas companies. Trailing 12 months EV/EBITDA for Apache, Spectra Energy Corp. (SE) and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (APC) is 3.6, 16.3 and 5.7, respectively. This clearly suggests that Apache is trading at a deep discount to its peers. In addition to the valuation, Apache's operation in the resources rich Permian and Central basin makes it a strong buy at current valuation.
