20 Mega Caps and Their Dividend Payments and Which to Consider
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

I often talk about large capitalized stocks and that they might offer a lower risk than small or micro caps.

It’s my general experience because I saw their business models and know that large capitalized companies are a compilation of several small and mid caps. Look at Procter & Gamble. They have a huge brand portfolio under the P&G corporate brand and a big part of them generate sales over a billion U.S. dollar and employs thousands of people.

I believe that a compilation of 10 or 20 mid caps could be a better investment for investors because they can benefit from the corporate diversification. For sure, the price they pay is a lower performance compared to pureblooded stocks with a single business model. Stable dividends and systematic growth is my major focus and most of them are generated by higher capitalized stocks. That's the result of my research.

Today, I give you an overview of the yields from mega caps. Those are companies with a market capitalization above the USD200 billion mark. Only 20 listed companies have such a big market capitalization and 18 of them pay good dividends; 16 have a buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite stocks:

General Electric (GE) has a market capitalization of $241.97 billion. The company employs 305,000 people, generates revenue of $147.359 billion and has a net income of $14.902 billion. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $29.339 billion. The EBITDA margin is 19.91 percent (the operating margin is 11.81 percent and the net profit margin 10.11 percent).

Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 60.42 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 336.56 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 12.24 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $1.43. Last fiscal year, the company paid $0.70 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 16.26, the P/S ratio is 1.63 and the P/B ratio is finally 1.97. The dividend yield amounts to 3.27 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.67.

Wells Fargo (WFC) has a market capitalization of $208.39 billion. The company employs 274,300 people, generates revenue of $48.391 billion and has a net income of $19.368 billion.
