My 4 Favorites from the Best Dividend Paying Stock List February 2013

Each month, I discover the best growth income picks with attractive dividend payments and growth figures. I’ve tried to summarize some significant fundamentals in order to screen the whole capital markets by interesting investment opportunities.

These are my criteria:

Market Capitalization: > 1 Billion
Price/Earnings Ratio: > 0< 100
Dividend Yield: > 3< 20
Return on Investment: > 10< 100
Operating Margin: > 10< 100
10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8< 200
10 Year EPS Growth: > 10< 100

The results from the screen are distinguished compared to the normal screens I made every day. Here is long-term growth a major aspect and some new names are on the list. The stocks are not typically dividend champions or stocks with a very long dividend growth history but they have managed a stronger growth of sales and income.

For me, the best equity investment is a stock with good fundamentals and a convincing equity story. If this stock is also attractively valued with a P/E below 15 or even 20 if the debt is low, it could promise good returns. This month, 25 companies fulfilled my screening criteria of which six have a high yield.
