4 High-Yielding Large-Capitalized Stocks with the Cheapest Fundamentals on the Market
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Dividend stocks with lovely looking fundamentals and cheap price ratios can promise you a good return, but they are also very rare. The higher the efforts of your screen are, the lower the number of results you get. Today I would like to update my monthly screen about the cheapest dividend-paying stocks on the capital market. I use six very strong criteria and only around a dozen companies remain each month.

My criteria for the cheap large cap screen are:

- Market capitalization over USD10 billion.
- Expected earnings per share growth over 10 percent for the next year.
- P/E ratio under 15.
- P/S and P/B ratio under 2.
- Positive dividends.

Thirteen companies fulfilled the criteria, and nine of them have a current buy or better rating. One stock has a high yield on a 12 trailing-month basis (5 percent dividend yield). To buy cheap stocks is no guarantee for a return, but you get value for what you pay. And the possibility to overpay a stock is also low as the business model is somehow stable.

Here are the four best yielding results:

BP PLC (BP)
