3 growth stocks with growing dividends

Every investor should be looking for businesses that are going to grow over the long-term.

The best time to buy growth stocks is when the share price has temporarily dipped. Although the below shares don’t have huge yields, I think the dividends will grow at a pleasing pace as well as the businesses themselves.

Here are three growth stocks that I’m thinking about buying shares in:

Greencross Limited (ASX: GXL)

Greencross is the pet market leader in Australia with its Petbarn stores and Greencross Vets.

Sentiment about the business has been negative in recent weeks due to Amazon’s impending arrival but I think the business can succeed without much worry. Its co-location strategy of putting a vet inside a Petbarn is a great idea.

It could also wipe the floor with the retail competition as its own online sales are increasing at a fast pace every year.

Greencross is currently trading at 15x FY17’s estimated earnings with a grossed-up dividend yield of 4.38%.

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd (ASX: DMP)

The pizza mogul business has seen its share price drop from $80 down to $54. A combination of allegedly underpaid wages and high valuation have seen the market push the price down.

I think Domino’s has a great long-term future as it’s looking to expand its store count in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium. The same store sales have also been growing at a really impressive rate.

Domino’s is currently trading at 39x FY17’s estimated earnings with a partially franked dividend yield of 1.62%. This isn’t cheap, but in a few years the current price could be well worth the money.

Seek Limited (ASX: SEK)

Seek is the job portal leader in Australia. It also has a large presence in Asia with Seek Asia and Zhaopin.

The Asian market has huge potential for Seek as more of the employment cycle is carried out online. China has a huge population for Seek to tap into.

The business is more susceptible to recessions due to the nature of its earnings being related to how many jobs are listed. However, I think a recession could be a great time to buy Seek shares.

Seek is currently trading at 30x FY17’s estimated earnings with a grossed-up dividend yield of 3.45%.

Foolish takeaway

I think all three businesses would be great options for an investor looking growth and a bit of income.

For income seekers, I think Greencross is a very attractive option at the current price. For capital growth, I think Domino’s could be a great long-term buy and hold over the next five years.
