My 4 Favorite Income Stocks with Biggest Earnings Growth

We all have a small problem if we have money to invest. The yields for high-quality stocks go rapidly down. It’s hard to find stocks with a dividend yield of more than 3 percent and a longer dividend growth history. Low yields can’t help you grow your wealth and protect your assets against inflation.

Today I started a screen of the most successful stocks in terms of earnings per share growth of the recent 10 years. I implemented a 4% barrier as well as a minimum market capitalization of at least USD1 billion.
Linked are the results of the highest growing long-term stocks with yields still above the 4% mark. Many oil and gas companies as well as mining stocks are in the below the results but in total they are well mixed.

Past performance does not guarantee a good future. Some of them had special economic situations and benefited from under capacities. Especially stocks from the commodity sector must be mentioned here. It’s very important to look at the future business environment and price developments of the underlying assets they produce and sell.

Here are my favorite stocks:
