The Best Yielding Money Center Banks Under Book Value Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Stocks from the money center banks industry still have tough times. Three years after the Lehman collapse, there is still pressure on the banking sector. The investment banking divisions are weak, equity efforts are higher and it harder to make money at low interest rates in struggling economies. The current unattractiveness of the industry can also be an opportunity for cyclic investors.


I screened the money center banks industry by stocks with the best dividend yield as well as an price to book ratio of less than one. The industry has thirty companies listed of which eighteen pay dividends. Only nine of them are below their book value and seven of them have a buy or better rating.
