My 3 Favorite 10% or Higher-Yielding Stocks with Buy or Better Rating

Stocks with very high yields could boost your dividend income onto the next level. Especially if you have only a few thousand dollars of investment budget it makes these to take a look at the highest yields at the market.

I know what I am talking about. In my first years of investing, I starred often at such stocks with unbelievable high yields. I talk about yields of over 10 percent. But the most of the results are not sustainable and databases are not well-kept. Especially in the case of lower capitalized stocks, the risk of a dividend cuts is very high.

Some of you ask me which stock to buy or which are the best 10 percent or higher yielding stocks to buy now. I made a little list of the highest yielding stocks, starting at 10 percent dividend yield. You won’t believe it but there are more than 100 companies with such a high yield. In order to reduce my results, I selected only those with a market capitalization of more than USD2 billion and a current buy or better recommendation. Eleven stocks remain. Five of the results come from the REIT industry.

Here are my favorite stocks:

Portugal Telecom (PT) has a market capitalization of $4.19 billion. The company employs 72,347 people, generates revenue of $7.874 billion and has a net income of $541.79 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $2.651 billion. The EBITDA margin is 33.67 percent (the operating margin is 12.10 percent and the net profit margin 6.88 percent).

Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 53.53 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 434.25 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 9.39 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $0.34. Last fiscal year, the company paid $1.67 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 13.74, the P/S ratio is 0.53 and the P/B ratio is finally 1.16. The dividend yield amounts to 17.47 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 0.83.
