Cheapest Dividend Paying Large Caps as of August 2013
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Dividend stocks with great looking fundamentals and cheap price ratios can promise you a good return but they are also very rare and hard to find in my view. The higher your efforts of your screen are, the lower the number of results you get.

Today I would like to update my monthly screen about the cheapest dividend paying stocks on the capital market. I use six very strong criteria and only around a dozen companies remain each month.

My criteria for the cheap large cap screen are:

- Market capitalization over USD10 billion.
- Expected earnings per share growth over 10 percent for the next year.
- P/E ratio under 15.
- P/S and P/B ratio under 2.
- Positive dividends.

Twelve companies fulfilled the above mentioned criteria and 10 of them have a current buy or better rating. One stock has a high yield (5 percent dividend yield or more). To buy cheap stocks is no guarantee for a return but you get value for what you pay and the possibility to overpay a stock is also low if the business model is stable.

Here are the highest yielding results in detail:

BP (BP)

Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 16.26 percent of BP’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 41.21 percent.

Last fiscal year, BP paid $1.98 in the form of dividends to shareholders. The earnings of BP are expected to grow by 13.77 percent for the next year and 5.0 percent for the upcoming five years.
