Best Dividend Paying High Yields Researched by “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.” High Yields are stocks with a dividend yield of more than five percent. 857 listed companies have such a high yield but not all of them have a sustainable dividend and pay the best dividends at the market.

In order to find the best dividend paying growth stocks from the investment class High Yield stocks, I screened all companies with a five percent dividend yield, great earnings per share growth of more than 10 percent and an operating margin over 15 percent. To get the best results in terms of low debt and high cash, the debt to equity ratio should be under 0.5. Thirteen High Yields remained of which nine are currently recommended to buy. The best recommended stock is City Telecom HK (CTEL) with a yield of 16.47 percent and a strong buy rating.
