My 3 Favorites from the Best Dividend Paying Stock List - September 2013

I’m looking for cheap stocks with a solid dividend. That’s my basic premise in stock hunting. In order to get new ideas, I make every month a screen about the best dividend paying stocks on the market.

The best dividend paying stock list is a small compilation with seven tough investing criteria, summarized below. The list includes each month around 20 to 30 results. It’s a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, NASDAQ and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.

Market Capitalization: > 1 Billion
Price/Earnings Ratio: > 0< 100
Dividend Yield: > 3< 20
Return on Investment: > 10< 100
Operating Margin: > 10< 100
10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8< 200
10 Year EPS Growth: > 10< 100

29 companies are part of the best dividend paying stock list for September 2013. The top pick is now Southern, a commodity based stock with a double-digit dividend yield. 15 stocks have a dividend yield over 4 percent, a good value in a low interest environment.
