15 of the Cheapest High-Yield Large Caps to Consider
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

I like high yields due to the high amount of cash dividends I receive as a shareholder. But dividends are not often safe. Especially smaller stocks have a higher risk for dividend cuts. I've tried to figure out some stocks with a large capitalization (over USD10 billion), a high dividend yield (over 5 percent) and finally a cheap P/E and forward P/E of less than 15. Only 15 of 35 large cap high yields fulfilled these criteria. Three have a double-digit yield and nine are currently recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
