Cheapest dividend paying large capitalized stocks with highest earnings per share growth; originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.

A cheap stock is the basis for every future returns. Beside cheap fundamentals and pricing ratios of a company, the expected growth is an additional important item for investors.

Most of my readers are looking for high yielding stocks or cheap stocks to buy. It sounds nearly similar because the goal of both is the same. In the end, all want a high return of the invested capital - no matter how they create it.

Every month, I make a screen of America’s cheapest dividend paying large capitalized stocks with highest expected growth for the upcoming fiscal year.

Sixteen companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which twelve stocks have a buy or better recommendation.
