Best Dividend Paying Stock List as of August 2011

Best Dividend Paying Stocks Lists By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. It is important for investors to select stocks with more than one interesting buy criteria. Interesting stocks must have good operational and profitability ratios, strong growth figures. Finally, they must be attractively valued. I’ve tried to summarize these criteria and screened a dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of 30 stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from the sheet are mid- and large-caps (market capitalization of more than USD $1 billion) with double digit long-term earnings growth rates (8 percent minimum for revenue growth and more than 10 percent earnings per share growth). Additional criteria are the return on investment for the capital efficiency and operating margin in order to indicate the profitability of the company. As pricing criteria, I decided to choose the P/E ratio, dividend yield and P/B ratio. Here are details of my criteria:

Market capitalization: > $1 billion

Price/Earnings Ratio:> 0< 100

Dividend Yield: > 2< 20

Return on investment: > 10< 100

Operating Margin: > 10< 100

10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8< 200

10 Year EPS Growth: > 10< 100
