The Best Yielding S&P 500 Dividend Stocks Below Book Value

S&P 500 With Low Price-To-Book Ratios And Highest Yields Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The amount of equity is very important in order to identify the company's values. Often, there is a great difference between the market capitalization and the book value of a company. The gap is explainable with a high profitable business that doesn’t need much money to finance the business operations. Otherwise, the market expects better future perspectives and market conditions of which the company should benefit.

No rarity, but there are also stocks below book value. In this case you get for a dollar of your investment more than a dollar in the company’s assets if there is no asset bubble.

I screened the S&P 500 by stocks below book value and yields over two percent inflation target rate. 56 stocks fulfilled these criteria but only 17 have a yield of more than two percent. Three of the results are high yields and ten are currently recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
