The Fastest-Growing Bargains from the Best Dividend-Paying Stock List
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

At the beginning of each month I screen the market with my best dividend-paying stock screening criteria which are listed below.

I believe that it makes sense to observe the market by good valuated long-term growth stocks. For sure many of the results are lucky strikes, companies that have had an extraordinary good financial strength and growth due to a fantastic business environment. But the developments are not sustainable.

But sometimes there are new ideas on my list like Herbalife or recently the weapon maker Sturm & Ruger. Those were corporate stocks in special situations.

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.

My Criteria to find the best dividend stock

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

Twenty-eight companies are part of the best dividend-paying stock list for October 2013. The top pick is still Southern Copper, a commodity-based stock with a double-digit dividend yield. Eight additional stocks have a dividend yield over 5 percent and 14 have a buy or better rating by brokerage firms.
