My 3 Favorite Foreign Stocks with Cheap Valuation and Great Yields
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Not only stocks from the U.S. are more expensive. Stock market all over the world rise to new highs but there are still some attractive opportunities.

Today I look at foreign dividend stocks. Europe could be a big source for cheap stocks because of the wuro crisis. Sure they got a tough fight, but if you believe that the 17-nation currency community will survive, you will definitely find some utilities or telecoms.

These are my stock screening criteria:

Headquarter: Ex-USA
Market Capitalization: Over 10 billion
Dividend Yield: +3 percent
Beta Ratio: Below 1
Forward P/E: Under 15

Nineteen companies fulfilled these criteria of which seven are high-yields. Five of the results have a buy or better recommendation. The valuation is between 6 and 15 of the expected full-year earnings.

Here are my favorite stocks:
